St. Teresa of Avila

“Anything that you ask of Me, I promise you to do”

‘I was once earnestly importuning the Lord to restore the sight of a person who was almost blind, and to whom I had a certain obligation; I was very sorry for him, and feared that the Lord would not hear me on account of my sins. But He appeared to me as on previous occasions, and began to show me the wound in His left hand. Then with His right He drew out a long nail that had been driven through it, and as He pulled at it, He seemed to tear His flesh. It was clear how painful this must be, and it distressed me greatly. “Seeing that I have done this for you,” He said, “you need have no doubt that I will even more readily do what you have asked Me. Anything that you ask of Me, I promise you to do, for I know that you will never ask for anything that will not redound to My glory. Therefore I will do what you ask of Me now. Even when you did not serve Me, you never asked for anything that I did not grant you in a better form than ever you were able to imagine. Do not doubt, therefore, that I shall do so now, when I know that you love Me.”`
-from The Life of St. Teresa of Avila by Herself, chapter 39
