I was sent this brief article today by George Anderson, S.J about praying on the go. In it he shares how he incorporates prayer into his daily commute, and he also includes St. Theresa of Avila’s powerful prayer:
“Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you. All things are passing. God never changes. Patience obtains all things. Nothing is wanting to the one who possesses God. God alone suffices.”
What strikes you about St. Theresa’s prayer?
I am struck by her complete surrender in this prayer. How do I need to surrender in my life?
