For by doing what God demands of us with total surrender of our innermost being, we cause the divine life to become our own inner life. Entering into ourselves, we find God in our own selves - Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross.

Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, you saw human suffering firsthand and allowed your reflections on that experience to open your mind and heart to a deeper understanding of the truth. You found the deepest truths in the life of Saint Teresa of Ávila and unhesitatingly entered the Church and convent. Please pray for us, that we will always be open to the deepest and most mysterious truths of our faith, especially the mystery of the Cross, so that we will live Christ’s Cross in our own lives to the fullest extent that we are able.
