St Teresa of AviIa

~ Spain~

born 1515, Died 1582

Saint Of The Month

In 1535 St. Teresa joined a Carmelite convent in Avila, Spain, and took the habit.  A year later, illness forced her to return home.  While recovering, she read a life-changing book, Third Spiritual Alphabet by Fr. Francis de Osuna.  The book was about prayers of recollection, and it inspired her to devote herself to prayer and to seeking perfect union with God through contemplation.
