“Saint Teresa of Ávila” (detail) by Peter Paul Rubens

(The Bookmark of St. Teresa)

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing dismay you,
All thing pass,
God never changes.
Patience attains all.
He who has God lacks nothing:
God alone suffices.

(Original Spanish)

Nada te turbe,
nada te espante;
todo se pasa,
Dios no se muda.
La pacientia todo lo alcanza.
Quien a Dios tiene nada la falta:
solo Dios basta.

October 15 is the Memorial of St. Teresa of of Jesus, Virgin and Doctor of the Church (1515 – 1582).
