ST TERESA OF AVILA: NOVENA DAY EIGHT

Oh, human misery!  When, daughters, will we imitate this great God?  Oh, let us not think we are doing anything by suffering injuries, but we should very eagerly endure everything, and let us love the one who offends us since this great God has not ceased to love us even though we have offended Him very much.  Thus the Lord is right in wanting all to pardon the wrongs done to them.

Interior Castle VI, Chapter 10.4
