St. Teresa of Avila

St. Teresa of Avila says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to give you hope – hope that all you feel inspired to pursue will be realized. Hope is the courage to persevere. Without hope, God's Will cannot come to fruition the way He most desires it to do so.”

“Hope is like an invisible thread that binds the human free will to the Divine. It is the courage to pursue righteousness and the truth. Hope is the weapon against Satan's discouragement.”

“Hope is the mother of courage. Without hope, discouragement wins out.”
