My favorite theologians (related to Hobbes) helped me internalize this poem today:
From Teresa of Avila’s Breviary
Let nothing disturb thee,
Nothing affright thee
All things are passing;
God never changeth;
Attaineth to all things;
Who God possesseth
In nothing is wanting;
Alone God sufficeth.
—H. W. Longfellow (translator).
From: Hispanic Anthology: Poems Translated from the Spanish by English and North American Poets. Collected and arranged by Thomas Walsh. G. P. Putnam’s Sons. New York, 1920.
Thanks to my listening to Pray-as-you-Go, I heard this recording of the prayer by the Taize community. May it encourage you, as it has me.
