St. Teresa of Avila
|A Prayer Diary||
[The heart] is not the seat of our personal affective life—or even, ultimately, of our personal identity—but an organ for the perception of divine purpose and beauty.
This morning, as I mourn the reposed and the tragedy of this young man’s choice of “spirit,” I pray that God re-affirm in me my choice, to be guided in my comings and goings by His Spirit.

To hold a conception of God as a mere magnified human being is to run the risk of thinking of Him as simply the Commander-in-Chief who cannot possibly spare the time to attend to the details of His subordinates’ lives.
By unceasing prayer curiosity, mistrustfulness and suspicion are destroyed and because of this other people begin to seem good in our eyes.
