Dear Saint Teresa,
As you know, since I make sure to remind you on a regular basis, your castle is very confusing to me and your mansions make me dizzy. You are well known for your honesty, so I know this does not offend you. Have pity on your poor little sister in Christ who stumbles blindly of late, struggling to find her way in this darkness. Turn my castle light back on, if you would, so I can see where I am going!
P.S. ( Just to let you know, I was not yelling at you in the last sentence but merely being emphatic. I may be mildly irreverent but I am not totally witless.Oh, and please don't forget to obtain a few more "holy cheats" for me while you are speaking to the Lord on my behalf. These come in very handy on earth! Thank you!)
Some favorite St. Teresa quotes that make me smile:
"About the injuction of the apostle Paul that women should keep silent in church? Don't go by one text only."
"If this is the way You treat your friends, it's no wonder You have so few!"
"How is it , Lord, that we are cowards in everything save in opposing Thee?"
