Feast Day of St. Teresa of AvilaVirgin and Doctor of the Church
In this year of St. Joseph, let us read the words of St. Teresa of Avila in reference to the intercessory power of St. Joseph.
“Knowing by experience St. Joseph’s astonishing influence with God, I would wish to persuade everyone to honor him with particular devotion. I have always seen those who honored him in a special manner make progress in virtue, for this heavenly protector favors in a striking manner the spiritual advancement of souls who commend themselves to him.”
St. Teresa of Avila, pray for us to remember to honor St. Joseph more faithfully.
St. Joseph, pray for us.
