Today is the Feast of St. Teresa of Avila

Saint Teresa of Avila was a very strong woman who reformed the Carmelite Order, and is one of the three women doctors of the Church, along with Saints Therese of Lisieux (another Carmelite) and Catherine of Siena (a Dominican).

For prayer is nothing else than being on the terms of friendship with God.

    Actually there are now four women Doctors of the Church. St. Hildegard of Bingen was named a Doctor last year!

      I imagine, from what I have read, that she was formidable.

    St. Teresa of Avila is someone I am yet to put a bit more effort into studying – soon I hope. I have been so busy of late – not much time for wordpress and other such interests – will enjoy catching up!!
