ST TERESA OF AVILA: NOVENA DAY ONE

Let’s strive to make more progress in self-knowledge.  In my opinion we shall never completely know ourselves if we don’t strive to know God.  By gazing at His grandeur, we get in touch with our own lowliness; by looking at His purity, we shall see our own filth; by pondering His humility, we shall see how far we are from being humble.
 
Interior Castle I, Chapter 2.9
