Adversity | Care | Faith | Obedience | Poverty | Simplicity

St. Teresa of Avila used to go walking barefoot across Spain seeking to save the churchwomen of her day from their own too-easy Christian living. Pledged to poverty and obedience, plagued all her life by opposition and open hostility from the prosperous churchmen who preferred wealthy ecclesiastical establishments, still Teresa serenely went around founding more and more houses where women could live and learn disciplined Christlikeness. When money was scarce for going on to the next place she simply said: “Teresa and three cents can do nothing. But God and Teresa and three cents can do anything.” From Twelve Baskets Full by Margaret Applegarth, page 124.
