Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila / Oracion de Santa Teresa de Jesus

“Let nothing disturb thee,
affright thee.
All things
are passing.
God never changes.
Patient endurance
 to all things.
Who God possesses
in nothing is wanting.
 God alone suffices."
(St. Teresa of Avila, 1515-1582)

"Nada te turbe;
nada te espante.
Todo se pasa;
Dios no se muda.
La paciencia
todo lo alcanza.
Quien a Dios tiene,
nada le falta.
Solo Dios basta."
(Santa Teresa de Jesús, 1515-1582)

St. Teresa looked nothing like the above drawing. (In fact, neither do I. ) The praying gal and the prayer, however, can be downloaded as a bookmark in English or, if you prefer St. Teresa's language, in Spanish. It's my little gift to you.

en castellaño:
Este mes me ha sorprendido con una tormenta de dificultades e incertitudes. La oración me ha salvado de ansiedades asi que la estoy compartiendo con ustedes.

Santa Teresa de Jesús no era nada como el dibujo. (Pues, yo tampoco soy asi). Sin embargo, puse el dibujo y oración en un marcador. Es un regalito para vos.
