Carmelite Quote



ST. TERESA OF JESUS OF THE ANDES
A LETTER TO HER FRIEND


...Sister Elizabeth of the Trinity used to say: "God is heaven and God is in my soul." We have heaven in our soul then.  Well now, what do they do in heaven? They love, contemplate and glorify God. this is what we must do here: love Him above everyone else. One who loves is always thinking of the beloved. Let's think of Him continually, but since that's impossible, at least let's think of Him very often. Let's contemplate Him there, in the depth of our soul, united to us. Let's contemplate Him praying to His eternal Father for souls and for sinners, and let's unite ourselves with that divine prayer. Let's contemplate Him, working at our side. Now I look at Him as I write and unite myself with Him. Let's contemplate Him joyfully-says Saint Teresa-at Tabor, when we're happy; and sad, as He was in the garden, if we're sad; and do it that way in every situation. Let's contemplate Him in His creatures. Then it'll e easier for us to have charity. If we're humiliated, let's accept this for His sake. If we're praised, we're praised for Him. If we serve, we serve Him...And finally, in heaven His praises are being sung and He's glorified in His works; let's be like Elizabeth of the Trinity then in praise of His glory.

Carmelite Quote



From the writings of St. Raphael Kalinowski:

Tomorrow is November 2, the day of the faithful departed. When I was still a boy, I dreamed I would die on All Souls Day. Whether I die on that day or not, no matter what happens, I still confess it is always good. Then I salute you cordially, and I ask you, come what may, to say a De Profundis for my soul.

(From a letter to his friend, Fr. Nowakowski)

(St. Raphael's dream came true, in a way.  He died on November 15, the feast of All Souls of Carmel.)
