Thought for the day, Sunday 19th June

“My soul suddenly became recollected, and it seemed to me to be like a brightly polished mirror, without any part that was not totally clear. In its centre, Christ our Lord was shown to me. It seemed to me I saw him clearly in every part of my soul, as though in a mirror. And this mirror also – I don’t know how to explain it – was completely engraved upon the Lord himself by means of a very loving communication… I think this vision is advantageous to recollected persons, in teaching them to consider the Lord as very deep within their souls… Within oneself, very clearly, is the best place to look. It’s not necessary to go to heaven, nor any further than our own selves.”

Teresa of Avila
