Thanks be to God for such a blessed weekend!!! It was the Carmelite Congress! This year is a very special year as we have been celebrating the 5th Centenary of St. Teresa of Jesus, a great saint and doctor of the church. It was such a joy and an honour to become one of my favourite saints for ten minutes. I prepared a short monologue on prayer and friendship with Christ taken mainly from St. Teresa’s book THE WAY OF PERFECTION chapter 26. The Carmelite Sisters of Zephyr’s booklet of St. Teresa’s quotes was a great resource! What a blessing!
