A Cure for Theresa

In her book, The Way of Perfection, St. Theresa of Avila modestly writes the following:

“And do not imagine that this most sacred food is not an excellent food for our bodies and a splendid remedy even for bodily ills! I know for a fact that it is. I know a person who suffered from serious illness (meaning herself) and was often in the greatest pain. That pain was lifted from her when she received the Eucharist so that she felt completely well.”
