Publicidade

Teresa de Ávila, O.C.D., conhecida como Santa Teresa de Jesus , nascida Teresa Sánchez de Cepeda y Ahumada, foi uma freira carmelita, mística e santa católica do século XVI, importante por suas obras sobre a vida contemplativa e espiritual e por sua atuação durante a Contra Reforma. Foi também uma das reformadoras da Ordem Carmelita e é considerada co-fundadora da Ordem dos Carmelitas Descalços, juntamente com São João da Cruz.

Em 1622, quarenta anos depois de sua morte, foi canonizada pelo papa Gregório XV. Em 27 de setembro de 1970, Paulo VI proclamou-a uma Doutora da Igreja e reconheceu seu título de Mater Spiritualium , em razão da contribuição que a santa proporcionou à espiritualidade católica. Seus livros, inclusive uma autobiografia e sua obra prima, "O Castelo Interior" , são parte integral da literatura renascentista espanhola e do corpus do misticismo cristão. Suas práticas meditativas estão detalhadas em outra obra importante, o "Caminho da Perfeição" .

Depois de sua morte, o culto a Santa Teresa se espalhou pela Espanha durante a década de 1620 principalmente durante o debate nacional pela escolha de um padroeiro, juntamente com Santiago Matamoros.

„It seems as if Thou didst subject those who love Thee to a severe trial: but it is in order that they may learn, in the depths of that trial, the depths of Thy love.“

—  Teresa of Ávila
The Life of St. Teresa of Jesus (c.1565), Context: All things fail; but Thou, Lord of all, never failest! They who love Thee, oh, how little they have to suffer! oh, how gently, how tenderly, how sweetly Thou, O my Lord, dealest with them! Oh, that no one had ever been occupied with any other love than Thine! It seems as if Thou didst subject those who love Thee to a severe trial: but it is in order that they may learn, in the depths of that trial, the depths of Thy love. O my God, oh, that I had understanding and learning, and a new language, in order to magnify Thy works, according to the knowledge of them which my soul possesses! Everything fails me, O my Lord; but if Thou wilt not abandon me, I will never fail Thee. Let all the learned rise up against me, — let the whole creation persecute me, — let the evil spirits torment me, — but do Thou, O Lord, fail me not; for I know by experience now the blessedness of that deliverance which Thou dost effect for those who trust only in Thee. In this distress, — for then I had never had a single vision, — these Thy words alone were enough to remove it, and give me perfect peace: "Be not afraid, my daughter: it is I; and I will not abandon thee. Fear not." It seems to me that, in the state I was in then, many hours would have been necessary to calm me, and that no one could have done it. Yet I found myself, through these words alone, tranquil and strong, courageous and confident, at rest and enlightened; in a moment, my soul seemed changed, and I felt I could maintain against all the world that my prayer was the work of God. Oh, how good is God! how good is our Lord, and how powerful! He gives not counsel only, but relief as well. His words are deeds. O my God! as He strengthens our faith, love grows. Ch. XXV. "Divine Locutions. Discussions on That Subject" ¶ 22 & 23

„Most of these trials and times of unrest come from the fact that we do not understand ourselves.“

—  Teresa of Ávila
Interior Castle (1577), Context: Just as we cannot stop the movement of the heavens, revolving as they do with such speed, so we cannot restrain our thought. And then we send all the faculties of the soul after it, thinking we are lost, and have misused the time that we are spending in the presence of God. Yet the soul may perhaps be wholly united with Him in the Mansions very near His presence, while thought remains in the outskirts of the castle, suffering the assaults of a thousand wild and venomous creatures and from this suffering winning merit. So this must not upset us, and we must not abandon the struggle, as the devil tries to make us do. Most of these trials and times of unrest come from the fact that we do not understand ourselves. Fourth Mansions, Ch. 1, trans. E. Allison Peers (1961),<!-- Image Books --> p. 77

„We cannot know whether we love God, although there may be strong reason for thinking so; but there can be no doubt about whether we love our neighbor or not. Be sure that, in proportion as you advance in fraternal charity, you are increasing your love of God“

Be sure that, in proportion as you advance in fraternal charity, you are increasing your love of God, for His Majesty bears so tender an affection for us that I cannot doubt He will repay our love for others by augmenting, and in a thousand different ways, that which we bear for Him. Fifth Mansion, Ch. 3, translated by the Benedictines of Stanbrook (1921), revised and edited by Fr. Benedict Zimmerman (1930); reprinted (2003) by Kessinger Publications, p. 109

„The words are very distinctly formed; but by the bodily ear they are not heard. They are, however, much more clearly understood than they would be if they were heard by the ear.“

—  Teresa of Ávila
The Life of St. Teresa of Jesus (c.1565), Context: It will be as well, I think, to explain these locutions of God, and to describe what the soul feels when it receives them, in order that you, my father, may understand the matter; for ever since that time of which I am speaking, when our Lord granted me that grace, it has been an ordinary occurrence until now, as will appear by what I have yet to say. The words are very distinctly formed; but by the bodily ear they are not heard. They are, however, much more clearly understood than they would be if they were heard by the ear. It is impossible not to understand them, whatever resistance we may offer. When we wish not to hear anything in this world, we can stop our ears, or give attention to something else: so that, even if we do hear, at least we can refuse to understand. In this locution of God addressed to the soul there is no escape, for in spite of ourselves we must listen; and the understanding must apply itself so thoroughly to the comprehension of that which God wills we should hear, that it is nothing to the purpose whether we will it or not; for it is His will, Who can do all things. Ch. XXV. "Divine Locutions. Discussions on That Subject" ¶ 1 & 2
