Today is the Christian Feast of St. Teresa of Avila. The Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha begins at sundown today. The Muslim Hajj (the pilgrimage to Mecca) and the Zoroastrian festival of Ayathrem Ghambar continue today.
The tree that is beside the running water is fresher and gives more fruit.
~ Teresa of Avila
Christ has no body now, but yours.
No hands, no feet on earth, but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which
Christ looks compassion into the world.
Yours are the feet
with which Christ walks to do good.
Yours are the hands
with which Christ blesses the world.
(St. Teresa of Avila)
