‘Obedience Gives Strength’


“I often thought my constitution would neverobey 1 endure the work I had to do, (but) the Lord said to me: ‘Daughter, obedience gives strength’.”

-St. Teresa of Avila

For Reflection:

Embracing the will of God with love and joy gives us the strength we need for every situation and makes our efforts fruitful. How does this knowledge apply to me today?

Why is it that our holy religion has less and less hold on the people? Why, instead of the spirit and life that it is, is it so often reduced to empty externals, routine practices and a dead symbolism? Why that cold indifference with which the generality of those who call themselves Christians look upon sacred things?
