Larry James' Urban Daily

There is a story told, a legend perhaps, about St. Theresa of Avila.
One day the devil appeared to her, disguised as Christ.
Theresa wasn't fooled for even a second. She immediately dismissed him.
Before leaving, however, the devil asked her: "How did you know? How could you be so sure I wasn't Christ?"
Her answer: "You didn't have any wounds! Christ has wounds."
