God alone suffices

“Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you.
All things pass.
God does not change.
Patience achieves everything.
Whoever has God lacks nothing; God alone suffices.”

St. Teresa of Avila


(plouvers, Rosemary Beach, FL / Julie Cook / 2019)

“If you wish to explore the Holy Scripture, and you overcome your laziness
and apply yourself, thirsting for the knowledge, then every good thing will be yours.
You will fill your mind with the divine light.
Then, when you apply that light to the doctrines of the Church,
you will very easily recognize everything that is true and unadulterated,
and lay it up in the hidden treasures of your soul.”

St. Cyril of Alexandria, p. 167
