St Teresa

Let nothing disturb thee,
Nothing affright thee
All things are passing;
God never changeth;
Patient endurance
Attaineth to all things;
Who God possesseth
In nothing is wanting;
Alone God sufficeth.
Saint Teresa (1515-1582), translated by H. W. Longfellow

This little verse, often used at our Corps as a benediction, speaks volumes to me at the moment. I've decided that I need to read up about St Teresa; what I've just read about her in Wikipedia has just peaked my interest.
