About Today Readings

St Teresa of Avila

Ephesians 1:15-23. You gave your Son authority over all your creation – Psalm 8:2-7. Luke 12:8-12.

What rich glories he has promised the saints will inherit

St Paul paints a most beautiful picture today of the ideal of Christian life. It involves love and faith, and inspires others with gratitude. It leads to wisdom, enlightenment and the glory of the saints in heaven. Yet even here on earth, we can get a glimpse of that grace in the body of Christ, the Church, and presence of the Risen One in all creation. On the Feast of St Teresa we give thanks for real people who have shone with the light of the Spirit. Teresa had a particular vocation to prayer and shared her experience in a book called The Interior Castle. May we enter that castle today and discover some of those ‘rich glories’.
