Daily Virtue Quote – St. Teresa of Avila

"You see now why the saints rejoiced in insults and persecutions: it was because these gave them something to present to the Lord when they prayed to Him.  What can a poor creature like myself do, who has had so little to forgive others and has so much to be forgiven herself?" Source: Saint [...]
