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.

– St. Teresa of Avila
