Let nothing upset you,
Let nothing frighten you.
Everything is changing;
God alone is changeless.
Patience attains the goal.
Who has God lacks nothing;
God alone fills all his needs.

---Saint Teresa of Avila

Teresa de Cepeda y Ahumada, born in Avila, Spain, in 1515 is one of the best loved saints in the Catholic tradition and a spiritual figure of universal appeal. A vivacious, talented girl, she entered a Carmelite convent at the age of 18 and passed more than 20 years there in doubt and division before she was able to dedicate herself completely to God. Now if it took her that long, living in prayer in this type of environment, is it any wonder that we sometimes doubt? We can look to many like Teresa and Thomas Merton who went before to show us that taking that Leap of Faith will accomplish that which we seek.
