The Castle Within Us

To Saint Teresa of Avila

“Courtesy of Misa Ferreira de Rezende”

There is a castle within us

Among all the most beautiful

Inside the castle there is a King

Who I will only know

When I will get rid of the slime

And of all deception

That entangles my living.

This King is the reason of our life

He makes himself to our measure:

He only gives Himself to

Whom gives Him the same

And He always leaves the freedom

To host His Majesty.

Lord, give me the grace to understand

That You are the Creator

And I am the creature

May I not be so hard

To trust in your love
