Dedication of the blog to St. Teresa of Avila

St. Teresa of Avila embracing the Child Jesus ©, 2012

Let nothing disturb thee;
Nothing affright thee;
All things are passing;
God never changeth;
Patient endurance 

Attaineth to all things;
Who God possesseth
In nothing is wanting;
Alone God Sufficeth.
– St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)

St. Teresa, please pray for us. I consecrate this blog to God through your hands. Your poem is the inspiration for this blog. How well you penned that “God Alone Sufficeth,” and how fitting this message is for our times. In our day and age, when we are tempted to put our trust in materialism, relativism, secularism, and what ever other -isms are out there, you remind us that He is All and in Him nothing is lacking. God Alone Sufficeth.

About KJ JMJ

Hello. My name is Ken. I have been discerning the Call for quite a long time, since I was knee high and my Grandpa took me to Holy Hill. I am particularly discerning a vocation as a Discalced Carmelite Friar. I hope this blog offers some assistance to you in discerning your own vocation. Please visit this blog often and journey with me as we all discover the call that God has given to each us.

    Hi Ken, thanks for your email. I just finished reading most of your blog. You have real gift for writing, and much wisdom for one I’m guessing is perhaps still a teen. I especially loved your brief but profound account of your time spent with the man who had Alzheimer’s. Keep writing; you will do much good.

    Thank you for all your descriptions of the activities at Holy Hill. As an OCDS, I find it very interesting! Do you know Father Jerome Earley, OCD? He was the spiritual assistant to my Community for about three years back in the 90’s. We loved him!

    You will be in my prayers as you continue to discern your vocation. I share your love for the Most Blessed Sacrament, and will especially be remembering you in my holy hours.

    I visited your friend John’s blog, and have listed both of your blogs on my blogroll.

    I will visit here often. Your joy in the Lord is contagious! Wonderful!!!

    God bless you,
