Three Quotes
by Teresa of Avila - 1515 to 1582

Christís Body

Christ has no body now on earth but yours;
yours are the only hands with which he can do his work,
yours are the only feet with which he can go about the world,
yours are the only eyes through which his compassion
can shine forth upon a troubled world.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.


From silly devotions
and from sour-faced saints,
good Lord, deliver us.


Let nothing disturb you;
let nothing dismay you;
all things pass;
God never changes.
Patience attains
all it strives for.
He who has God
finds he lacks nothing;
God alone suffices
