St. Teresa of Avila, Doctor and Virgin
The Interior Castle was the Bear's Lenten reading last time, and he cannot recommend it highly enough.
"St. Teresa's Bookmark" was a prayer found on card in her breviary after her death. It is particularly helpful today.
Let nothing affright thee,
Nothing dismay thee.
All is passing,
God ever remains.
Patience obtains all.
Whoever possesses God
Cannot lack anything
God alone suffices.
Prayer from Today's Morning Prayer
who through your Spirit
raised up Saint Teresa of Jesus
to show the Church the way to seek perfection,
grant that we may always be nourished
by the food of her heavenly teaching
and fired with longing for true holiness.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
