She was born in Ávila in 1515 and died in Alba de Tormes in 1582. The Lord endowed this extraordinary woman with wonderful natural garments of wit, judgment and greatness of heart.

On this, Divine grace filled her with the best charisms: prayer, humility, zeal for souls, the highest union with God; Hence the incomparable greatness of the Castilian Saint: that sanctity so supernatural and at the same time so human, that magisterium in the ways of mysticism and that fertility as a reformer of the Carmelite Order.

V: Saint Therese of Avila.
A: Pray for us.
