Sharing with you a beautiful write up of Saint Teresa of Avila about prayer.

Pay no attention to anyone who tries to dissuade you from your devotions. Of course there are dangers

along this way. Even if they attempt to frighten you as you travel the road walked by Christ and his followers,

you can be sure they are on a much riskier path. They have no idea what hazards wait for them along

their earthly road. They will eventually die of thirst. I advise you not to allow anyone to mislead you by

pointing out some other road than the road of prayer. – Saint Teresa of Avila, a little daily wisdom

an image of Saint Teresa i took during a pilgrimage to Lisieux, France. This image was actually inside the Church of the Monastery of the Carmelites Sisters where St Therese of the Child Jesus lived and died.


Our challenge is to protect our daily prayer time – our “date with Jesus!”
