Saintly Quote - Surrendering to God's Will

Santa Teresa de Avila

They deceive themselves who believe that union with God consists in ecstasies or raptures, and in the enjoyment of Him. For it consists in nothing except the surrender and subjection of our will - with our thoughts, words and actions - to the will of God....


St. Teresa of Avila RCAV 20.10.06
