“Let nothing trouble you, let nothing make you afraid. All things pass away. God never changes. Patience obtains everything. God alone is enough. Dream that the more you struggle, the more you prove the love that you bear your God, and the more you will rejoice one day with your Beloved, in a happiness and rapture that can never end . . . Hope, O my soul, hope. You can know neither the day nor the hour. Watch carefully, for everything passes away quickly, even though your impatience makes doubtful what is certain and turns a very short time into a long one.”St. Teresa of Jesus (Avila)

    Happy (belated) feast day!

  2. Beautiful Angela – ‘this too shall pass’ – good or bad, they are comforting and salutary words. We must fully appreciate now and take comfort if things are not so good that it will pass from us. Lovely post. 🙂
