Gratitude

It was said of St. Teresa of Avila that she was the most grateful woman in the world, a characteristic of her

high sanctity. With true humility she wrote to her sisters: "Gratitude is not a virtue in me, but a natural instinct.

It is how I am made; in fact, if one were to give me a sardine, I would feel an affectionate gratitude towards the giver."
