+JMJ+ Welcome to part 41 of our weekly series on the soul. I couldn’t let today go by without a special something for the saint whose name I had chosen but, sadly, never got to give as my confirmation name (that part was skipped over for some reason): Saint Teresa of Avila, or, more properly, Saint Teresa de Jesus. Even more properly: Santa Madre Teresa de Jesus. (I’ve actually practiced saying that for years and if I could roll my r’s, I think it would sound pretty convincing, but I cain’t, so it dudden.) So I’ll post the next part of Body, Soul, and the Life Everlasting next week and share these three talks about Saint Teresa, Doctor of the Church and of the Soul, with you tonight. (I think we’ll have to explore some of St. Teresa’s writings at some point, don’t you?)

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope you found these talks interesting or even inspiring. (Confessions: I’m still watching them and will continue to watch after I post this.) Until next time, whoever and wherever you are, please stay safe and well, and more importantly for your immortal soul, virtuous and holy. May the Lord bless and keep you, and may His peace be always with you. +JMJ+
