Wounded In The Most Exquisite Way


Bernini's "Saint Teresa of Avila"

"And as clearly as it hears a thunderclap, even though no sound is heard, the soul understands that it was called by God...It feels that it is wounded in the most exquisite way...It knows clearly that the wound is something precious, and it would never want to be cured...The wound satisfies it much more than the delightful and painless absorption of the prayer of quiet...a whisper so penetrating that the soul cannot help but hear it."

Saint Teresa of Avila
