Mad with Love…..


You, Jesus Christ become Man; You, bread! Oh, to annihilate oneself, how little that would be! If you had left us a relic of Yourself it would be a sign of love worthy of our veneration, but you yourself remain knowing that you would be the object of profanation, sacrilege and ingratitude, abandoned. Are you, Lord, mad with love?”         (St.Teresa of the Andes OCD)

    • Thank you, Nancy! She’s is one of my favorite Carmelite Saints. She died at 19 and made her profession on her death bed. She came from a wealthy family and had beauty and charm etc. She faced a lot of opposition to her vocation, but her heart was set on her Jesus…Who had spoken to her since her First Holy Communion. Love the Saints! xoxo

  1. I can’t even imagine the fullness of His “mad love!” May we love Him truly and more fully in the moments we are given….Thank you Patricia for this beautiful and piercing quotation from an incredible Saint. Love and light….
