St. Teresa of the Andes – Meditation #2

Letter #8 to her sister Rebecca about her vocation

April 15, 1916

  “Jesus already lives in my heart. I strive to unite myself, to become like Him and abase myself in Him. I’m a drop of water that must disappear in the Infinite Ocean. But there is an abyss that the drop cannot cross; and the ocean overflows in such a way that the drop of water remains in the most complete abandonment of itself and lives in a continuous whisper, calling to the Divine Ocean.”
