(Saint Teresa of Jesus, Virgin and Doctor of the Church)
Brothers and sisters: It is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the slave woman and the other by the freeborn woman. The son of the slave woman was born naturally, the son of the freeborn through a promise. Now this is an allegory. These women represent two covenants. One was from Mount Sinai, bearing children for slavery; this is Hagar. But the Jerusalem above is freeborn, and she is our mother. . . . we are children not of the slave woman but of the freeborn woman. Gal_4:22-24,26-27,31–5:1
Our Covenant offered by Jesus.
Our freedom sealed with our Faith.
Our reward – eternal life of Love!
