Soul Food! Nov 9, 2006
Daily reflections that are food for thought and the soul. Thersa of Avila is one of my favorite Saints. Her writing style hints to a no nonsense approach to the subject matter at hand. Each day is a new day for me when I read these reflections. I suspect this will be the case for others as well. They are short and to the point and real food for the soul.
