Tartugas, there's a quote that is attributed to St. Theresa of Avila:

Quote:
"As an old, ill nun, the foundress of Carmel was on the way
to visit one of her foundations. It was winter
and the road—if one could call it a road—was
knee deep in mud. The wagon had once again
become stuck and St. Teresa was obliged to get
out and lighten the load. Upon alighting she
fell flat in the mud. She heard God say in one
of her locutions,

“This is how I treat my
friends.”

Teresa was heard to mutter,

“Well, it's no wonder you have so few.”
