Source this!

A quick search on Google produced:

St. Teresa of Avila said, "Lord, deliver us from gloomy saints!"
As St. Teresa famously said, 'Lord, deliver me from gloomy saints!'
St. Teresa of Avila said once, “God deliver me from gloomy saints!”
"May God protect me from gloomy saints," Teresa said,

Oh she did, did she? or, is this like the so-called "prayer of St. Francis," composed in 1915?

Anyone want to provide a citation for me, so I can read it in context?

This last Sunday's reading in Divine Intimacy, #161, is not going to be easy to square with the above purported quote...
