"No Wonder You Have So Few Friends!"

St. Teresa of Avila

from "'A Gift of All That One Is': The Laughing Man Interviews Mother Tessa Bieleck". The Laughing Man, vol. 4, no.2, p.52

St. Teresa of AvilaIt is said that once Saint Teresa of Avila was riding through the back roads of Spain during a torrential rainstorm. Her horse-drawn cart hit a huge pothole and collapsed, throwing her head-first into the mud. Saint Teresa complained to Jesus at being treated in this manner in the midst of trying to serve Him. The voice of Jesus then came to her from the heavens: "This is how I treat my friends, Teresa." Wiping the mud from her face, she replied, "No wonder you have so few!"
