“You pay God a compliment by asking great things of him” – Saint Teresa of Avila

The Pay God a Compliment Prayer Pillowcase shares an uplifting quote by Saint Teresa of Avila as encouragement to follow her example of prayerfully putting one's trust in God.
Many of us may relate to Saint Teresa of Avila’s early difficulty with embracing a dedicated prayer life while feeling overwhelmed by her sin. But there is little doubt that Saint Teresa “asked great things” of God for today she is acknowledged as a “Doctor of the Church” and one of its great mystics and reformers. We can learn from her example of clinging to God in spite of inner turmoil, of persevering and asking Him with open heart, “What do you want from me?”
The Pay God a Compliment Prayer Pillowcase adds heavenly inspiration to Catholic home décor and daily life with this reminder from Saint Teresa to turn to God with our burdens, as well as our love.
