Sullen saints not wanted

God, deliver me from sullen saints. – Saint Teresa of Avila

Sullen saints not wanted

Yes, I thought that should say it all

Yet, is it not a paradox

Can one be a saint and  not be wanted?

I guess it has to mean something else

That saints are called to be cheerful

Be of good cheer

Christ has conquered the world

Be of good cheer

All things are passing

Praise the Lord!

St Teresa of Avila, pray for us!
