Some random insights of Teresa of Avila

We must risk all for God

We’ve gone to the moon and back, but are afraid to go within

St Teresa of Avila was driven to become a nun at the Incarnation Monastery, not for any spiritual reason, but “because I had a friend there.”  She became one of the greatest spiritual doctors we’ve ever had

Who cares if we think much? What matters is that we love much.

When you love another person, you exist in him or her in a trinitarian kind of way

For God, to gaze is to love. We must gaze in the same way.

We become like God through love.

Union wiht God takes place through love
