Saint Teresa of Avila

"At last, at last, a daughter of the Church"

Saint Teresa of Avila, lovingly referred to as Teresa la Grande, is a radical sign in our Church. She is so grand, yet so simple in her walk toward the Lord. We believe the reason we shied away from her for so many years is that we were intimidated by her biographers. We were afraid she was high above us, intellectually and spiritually.

We tried to bypass her Shrines at Avila and Alba de Tormes. But the more we attempted to go round her, the more she drew us to her. We planned a pilgrimage to the Shrines of Europe. A beautiful lady, Sister Jane, was celebrating her 25th anniversary as a Religious. She and another Sister also celebrating her 25th anniversary, were given the money to go with us. When we met Sister Jane, she bowled us over with her excitement. We were going to the Holy Land, Rome, Assisi, Siena, Lourdes, Fatima, and as an aside, Avila. When she heard Avila, she almost went into ecstasy. This was her greatest dream, to walk where Teresa, had walked. Because of her, we too became excited.

Saint Teresa of Avila touched us again on that pilgrimage, in Lourdes. We were honored to meet up with our Archbishop, the late Timothy Cardinal Manning. He was on a private pilgrimage of Lourdes and the Holy Land (Ireland), with another Priest. He asked us our itinerary. When we neglected to mention Alba de Tormes, he looked us in the eye, and suggested, no, commanded, "If you don’t visit any other Shrine, you must go to Alba de Tormes." Cardinal Manning had the ability to burrow through to your soul with his eyes and his voice.

The Shrines were beautiful. The tribute given to Saint Teresa of Avila by the Church was awe-inspiring. But we got to know Teresa through her Carmelite Priests, at the Shrines. At her birthplace in Avila, a young Priest explained who Teresa was and is. In Alba de Tormes, Fray Hernandez, spoke of her with such simplicity and love, we hungered to learn more.

Saint Teresa of Avila

"At last, at last, a daughter of the Church"

Teresa of Avila, lovingly referred to as Teresa la Grande, is a radical sign in our Church. She is so grand, yet so simple in her walk toward the Lord. We believe the reason we shied away from her for so many years is that we were intimidated by her biographers. We were afraid she was high above us, intellectually and spiritually.

We tried to bypass her Shrines at Avila and Alba de Tormes. But the more we attempted to go round her, the more she drew us to her. We planned a pilgrimage to the Shrines of Europe. A beautiful lady, Sister Jane, was celebrating her 25th anniversary as a Religious. She and another Sister also celebrating her 25th anniversary, were given the money to go with us. When we met Sister Jane, she bowled us over with her excitement. We were going to the Holy Land, Rome, Assisi, Siena, Lourdes, Fatima, and as an aside, Avila. When she heard Avila, she almost went into ecstasy. This was her greatest dream, to walk where Teresa, had walked. Because of her, we too became excited.

Teresa touched us again on that pilgrimage, in Lourdes. We were honored to meet up with our Archbishop, the late Timothy Cardinal Manning. He was on a private pilgrimage of Lourdes and the Holy Land (Ireland), with another Priest. He asked us our itinerary. When we neglected to mention Alba de Tormes, he looked us in the eye, and suggested, no, commanded, "If you don’t visit any other Shrine, you must go to Alba de Tormes."

The Shrines were beautiful. The tribute given this great Saint by the Church was awe-inspiring. But we got to know Teresa through her Carmelite Priests, at the Shrines. At her birthplace in Avila, a young Priest explained who Teresa was and is. In Alba de Tormes, Fray Hernandez, spoke of her with such simplicity and love, we hungered to learn more.

Teresa, is that when you became a part of our lives? Was it the day we discovered you were reachable, so touchable, when the Priest spoke of you so lovingly that tears came to his and our eyes? We never knew. When our daughter had spoken of castles; when we started to realize what castle she meant, the Interior Castle1, we became intimidated. We tried to read about the different mansions in the Castle; we felt we would never be able to go beyond the first mansion (room), if we had the courage to enter it, in the first place. But after sharing you with those beautiful Carmelites, we fell in love with you. We knew you were reaching out to us; we gulped a few times, and said Yes!

We knew it couldn’t be our design, to write about Teresa, instead of a Saint we judged easier. As we studied her life and her spirituality, we discovered a woman for all seasons. Rather than a Saint, too spiritual and too deep to understand, we found a woman, with practical, good common sense, someone not superior to the simple mind nor too simple for the superior mind. We found a warm, loving mother with an ear and a heart always open to her sisters.

Teresa, model, and heart of the Church

Although Teresa was and is truly Catholic, we found her to be a model for non-Catholics as well. Crashaw, the English Protestant poet, who converted to Catholicism and later became a Priest, was just one of the many whose lives were changed as a result of her writings.

Blessed Edith Stein, went from being born a Jewess, to a life of science with the exclusion of God, to conversion to the Roman Catholic Church after reading Saint Teresa’s autobiography. She died a Carmelite Nun and Martyr in the gas chambers of Auschwitz.

Macauley, a historian, said Teresa did more to block the spread of Protestantism, by her life and writings, than even Saint Ignatius Loyola. "If Saint Ignatius Loyola is the brain of the Catholic reaction, Teresa is its heart; if Ignatius is the head of a great band, Teresa of Jesus belongs to its humanity."

Saints like Francis de Sales and Alphonsus Liguori, both Doctors of the Church, not only greatly admired her, but turned to her works for enlightenment and inspiration. Her autobiography, written reluctantly out of obedience to her Spiritual Director, has become known as one of the most important books on the Christian Way of Life.

Popes, over the centuries, have extolled Saint Teresa and her writings. Pope Saint Pius X said one need go no farther than her books to discover how to live a truly holy life; that in her works she very clearly directs one, from the very ordinary, everyday living of the Christian life, to the highest peaks of holiness. Very simply, she teaches that true progress in prayer is achieved by the faithful fulfilling of our daily duties with Christ as the center, and the living out of our belief in a holy and obedient manner.

Viewer Comments: Dear Bob and Penny:
We are a Chilean family, presently living in Germany, and we would like to ask you some questions.

We would like to know how we could obtain a copy of the series that are shown on EWTN.
We have the blessing to be able to pilgrimage to some important places like the Divine Mercy Sanctuary in Cracow, Poland. And only a couple of months ago, I was in Montefalco, Italy visiting the Church where the body of Saint Clare is.  We purchased some of the Montefalco Rosaries (the ones made from the seeds from the trees in the garden).
That series shown on television, are like the main food of  the day, we want to obtain them.
Our mother language is Spanish, and we would like to have that series in DVD in Spanish version.
Thanks in advance for your reply, we appreciate it.
Receive God’s blessings.
M. B.                                                                                  Germany

Saints And Other Powerful
Women in the Church
 

Bob and Penny have taken 10 of the most powerful women in the Church of yesterday and today, and shared them in a way that can be understood by all. They write about these women in their simple and engaging style, which has placed them among the most popular Catholic writers of the day.
Each of these 10 women are Role Models for the faithful of today.  Read how they suffered rejection by their peers, discrimination because of sex, and how they rose above all of it to become movers and shakers of the world.  There is a common thread, which gave them the strength to go on when others would have backed down -their devotion to the Holy Eucharist and Mother Mary and an unbending commitment to their vows, most especially that of obedience.

Saints And Other Powerful
Men
In The Church

Down through the ages, men and women have given their lives to carry out the command of Jesus.  Bob and Penny Lord have tracked the lives of 12 men who have said, Yes! to Jesus, and dedicated their lives to that Yes!, some at the cost of their lives.  Their biographies parallel the times of crisis in our Church.  Bob and Penny have set their sights on the man and the time in which he lived.  They have started at the beginning of our infant Church, with one of the greatest adventurers our Faith has ever known, Paul the Apostle, and continued to our present day, ending with a Paul of the Electronic Age, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.
They have focus on the problems in the world and the Church at these crucial times in our history, the men the Lord sent to save the world and the Church from destruction, the struggles they encountered along the way, and the ultimate triumph of Jesus through His Powerful Men in the Church.
