“Oh Lord! All our ills come from not fixing our eyes on Thee: if we looked at nothing else but where we are going we should soon arrive, but we fall a thousand times and stumble and go astray because we do not keep our gaze bent on Him Who is the ‘Way.'” — St. Teresa of Avila, “The Way of Perfection”
This is a message I’ve been hearing personally a lot lately: to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus. It’s funny, this came out in the prayer I posted last week before I read this and before I’ve been hearing it on the radio, on TV and in homilies. God works in amazing ways if you just listen!
