This year’s celebration of the feast day of the 16th century Spanish saint Teresa of Avila is especially significant because in March of next year we will mark 500 years since her birth. A number of my friends have been sharing their favourite Teresa quotations via email and Facebook today. A couple of examples:
“May God save us from gloomy saints”
and advising a bishop:
“My Lord, you are just wrong”
and a selection of her inspirations at this link: Teresa: top 10 quotes.
