Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila

In celebration of the feast day in honor of Saint Teresa of Avila, I drew a bookmark with St. Teresa's prayer and a drawing on it.


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

And in Spanish:

"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."

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 español:
Puse el dibujo y oración en un marcador. Es un regalito para ustedes.
