St. Teresa’s Historical Context


The following verses were found handwritten in St. Teresa of Avila's breviary:

Nada te turbe...


“Nada te turbe. Nada te espante. Dios no se muda. Todo se pasa. La paciencia todo lo alcanza. Quien a Dios tiene, nada le falta. Sólo Dios basta.”


“Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing make you afraid. All things are passing. God alone never changes. Patience gains all things. If you have God, you will want for nothing. God alone suffices.”
