St. Teresa of Avila

St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)

“It should be noted here that it is not the spring, or the brilliant sun which is in the centre of the soul, that loses its splendour and beauty, for they are always within it and nothing can take away their beauty.”

  • From S. Teresa of Avila’s Interior Castle (First Mansions, chapter 2), translated by E. Allison Peers (Dover Publications, 2007).
