Oct 16th 2015 by

St. Teresa of Avila (1515–1582), the great Spanish Carmelite nun, mystic, and Doctor of the Church, most famous for her classic spiritual writings, The Interior Castle and The Way of Perfection, also wrote the famous poem below, Nada Te Turbe.

And we still have it in her original handwriting.

Nada Te Turbe: A Poem by St. Teresa of Avila

The poem reads:

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.

- Teresa de Jesus

________________

Let nothing disturb you,

Let nothing frighten you, All things pass away: God never changes. Patience obtains all things. He who has God Finds he lacks nothing; God alone suffices.

- Teresa of Jesus

Watch a virtual choir of Carmelites sing Nada Te Turbe in honor of St. Teresa of Avila's 500th birthday last year.
