Teresa of Avila: the power of obedience

Thursday, October 15, 2020
    Feast of Teresa of Avila, Mystic, Teacher, 1582
    Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I am full of joy over you; but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.
    —Romans 16:19-20 (NIV)
    I know the power obedience has of making things easy which seem impossible.
    ... Teresa of Avila (1515-1582), The Interior Castle [1577], tr., E. Allison Peers, Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, 1961, p. 33 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 16:19; Matt. 19:24-26; Luke 1:37; Eph. 2:10; Phil. 2:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the hidden power within Your church.
