#429 I’ve been reading about #saintteresaofavila on #mysticaltheology this week. In seeking to put into words the experience of the #soul which has met its Creator, she compares it to a #butterfly: “Oh, to see the restlessness of this charming little butterfly, although never in its life has it been more tranquil and at peace! May God be praised! It knows not where to stay nor take its rest; everything on earth disgusts it after what it has experienced, particularly when God has often given it this wine which leaves fresh graces behind it at every draught.”
