Saint Teresa of Avila
Dear Jesus, Saint Teresa realized with shock and sorrow that her love for You was almost nil compared to Your great love for her. She decided to devote herself to prayer and sacrifice, and in so doing, she became a mystical contemplative. She wrote that if we fully yield our lives, "I am convinced that He never ceases bestowing His graces until He has brought us to a very high state of prayer." I ask her to intercede for my purification. O Lord, help me to let go of my will and teach me to overcome the limitations imposed by self-centeredness. Raise me to the intimate prayer of contemplation. Saint Teresa, pray for me. Amen.
