“It is amusing to see souls who, while they are at prayer, fancy they are willing to be despised and publicly insulted for the love of God, yet afterward do all they can to hide their small defects; if anyone unjustly accuses them of a fault, God deliver us from their outcries!”
-St. Teresa of Avila
This is a hard truth from St. Teresa. If I’m being honest with myself, to what extent does this describe me?
