Oh, What a Serious Thing

'Oh, what a serious thing sin is, 
for it was enough to kill God with so many sorrows!  
And how surrounded You are by them, my God!  
Where can You go that they do not torment You? 
Everywhere mortals wound You... 
what extraordinary ingratitude, my King!'

St. Teresa of Avila

  1. "Everywhere mortals wound You..." including me...ungrateful me.
    Kyrie eleison!
