St Teresa of Avila
(Foundress of the Discalced Carmelite Order)

St Teresa of Avila was a very prolific writer. Although her writings are 400 years old, they are as meaningful to us today as they were when she wrote them. She died in 1582 and was canonized some 40 years later. She was the first woman saint to be declared a Doctor of the Church.

The following quotes give us an idea of her writings:
