Communicating Compassion

Heavenly Father, in Your Name, I offer this as my prayer:

“Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing frighten you. All things pass. God does not change. Patience achieves everything. Whoever has God lacks nothing. God alone suffices. Christ has no body now on earth but yours; no hands but yours; no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ must look out on the world. Yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good. Yours are the hands with which He is to bless His people.”

—St. Teresa of Avila (March 28, 1515—October 4, 1582)

Keywords: compassion, consistency, all-sufficiency, persistence
