A weblog by Will Fitzgerald

Nada te turbe

Nada te turbe;
nada te espante;
todo se pasa;
Dios no se muda,
la paciencia
todo lo alcanza.
Quien a Dios tiene,
nada le falta.
Solo Dios basta.

Nothing disturb thee,
Nothing frighten.
All things pass away,
God never changes.
It is with patience that
All things are completed.
For those who have God,
Nothing is lacking.
God alone is sufficient.

Teresa de Avila, Lines written in her breviary, my translation. (thank you, Anna).
