St. Teresa of Avila Drawing

One of the congregants at the church tried their hand at this rendering of St. Teresa of Avila! The artist prefers to remain anonymous.
The following is a prayer by St. Teresa of Avila:
For True Life
Govern all by thy wisdom, O Lord,
  so that my soul may always be serving thee
    as thou dost will,
    and not as I may choose.
Do not punish me, I beseech thee,
  by granting that which I wish, or ask,
     if it offend thy love, which would always live in me.
Let me die to myself, that I may serve thee;
let me live to thee, who in thyself art the true life.  Amen
Teresa of Avila, Spain, 16th century
