Spiritual Quote of the Day (St. Teresa of Avila, on Mercy and Gratitude to God)

 “I cannot believe that a soul which has arrived so near to Mercy itself, where she knows what she is, and how many sins God has forgiven her, should not instantly and willingly forgive others, and be pacified and wish well to everyone who has injured her, because she remembers the kindness and favors our Lord has shown her, whereby she has seen proofs of exceeding great love, and she is glad to have an opportunity offered to show some gratitude to her Lord.” — Spanish nun and mystic St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582), The Way of Perfection, and Conceptions of Divine Love, translated by the Rev. John Dalton (1852)
