Acts of Faith
17 For though the fig tree does not blossom,
and no fruit appears on the vine,
Though the yield of the olive fails
and the terraces produce no nourishment,
Though the flocks disappear from the fold
and there is no herd in the stalls,
18 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD
and exult in my saving God.
19 GOD, my Lord, is my strength;
he makes my feet swift as those of deer
and enables me to tread upon the heights.
Teresa of Avila
St. Teresa of Ávila (Teresa of Jesus).
- "If this is how you treat your friends, no wonder you have so few of them!"
- "God and Teresa are nothing; God, Teresa, and three gold pieces can change the world!"
Let nothing trouble you,
let nothing make you afraid
All things pass away.
God never changes.
Patience obtains everything.
God alone is enough.
