St. Teresa of Jesus (of Avila) - Happy Feast Day!!!!! (she's the foundress of our branch of Carmelites so we are celebrating it as a solemnity - highest form of feast day)


St. John of the Cross one of thirty one Doctors of the church who learned of self-sacrificing love and gave up a wealthy life to find a world of beauty and happiness in God. Becoming a Carmelite he wrote in his famous poetry, "Now that I no longer desire it all, I have it all without desire" Of most famous books he is noted for "Dark Night of the Soul", which explains this and was emphasized by Mother Teresa.

Nunca te canses de hacer ocsas pequeñas por los otros, algunas veces esas cosas pequeñas, ocupan una gran parte en sus corazones. ~Sta. Teresa de Lisieux
