St. Theresa prayer

Last Sunday I went to IUCC again. Loved it, as usual. The sermon was challenging and academic, discussing the different camps of Paul and John and their divergent takes on the inclusiveness and exclusiveness of Christianity. At one point, the worship leader read this quote from St. Theresa which I thought was wonderful.

"May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of you. "
