St. TERESA OF AVILA

 

Teresa Ahumada was born at Avila in Spain on March 28th 1515.  As a child, Teresa lived a somewhat sheltered life.  She was very devout and even dreamed of being a martyr at the hands jof the infidels.  She grew to be a beautiful young woman and was described by her peers as talented and outgoing, adaptable and affectionate, courageous and practical and after struggling for years with her own mediocrity and illness, shhe found herself searching for God.  She established a new form of Carmelite convent, the discalced carmelites of the reform (shoeless), of which there were soon houses both for man and for women.  They shared in the chores equally, including Theresa, where they fully observed the primitive rule of Carmelite life.

In the midst of her many activities, she found time for writing.  She never knew Latin or scholastic methods, but she erote what she understood from her heart and from her mystical prayer.  Thus it was that she became the first woman to have been given title Doctor of the Church, and one of the most beloved saints of Spain and Latin America.  In 1982, on the fourth Centenary of her death, Pope John Paul spoke not about her wisdom - but of the values to which she dedicated her life.

Towards the end of her life she exclaimed "oh. My Lord! how true it is that whoever works for you is paid in troubles! And what a precious price to those who love you if we understand its price."  Thus she died as Mother Teresa de Jesu at Alma de Tormes on October 4th 1582.  Within the span of those 67 years, she lived an amazing life.

DATE OF FORMATION:  28th NOVEMBER 2002.

10 April 2021: Saturday in the Octave of Easter
Thought of the day
    10 April 2021: Saturday in the Octave of Easter LECTIONARY: 266 FIRST READING: ACTS 4:13-21 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus. But seeing the man who was healed standing beside them, they had nothing to say in opposition. But when they had commanded them to leave the council, they conferred with one another, saying, “What shall we do with these men? For that a notable sign has been performed through them is evident to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it. But in order that it may spread no further among the people, let us warn them to speak no more to anyone in this name.” So they called them and charged them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge, for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.” And when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way to punish them, because of the people, for all were praising God for what had happened. PSALM: PS 118:1 AND 14-15AB, 16-18, 19-21 Response: I will give thanks to you, for you have answered me. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his mercy endures forever. My strength and my courage is the LORD, and he has been my saviour. The joyful shout of victory in the tents of the just. “The right hand of the LORD is exalted; the right hand of the LORD has struck with power.” I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. Though the LORD has indeed chastised me, yet he has not delivered me to death. Open to me the gates of justice; I will enter them and give thanks to the LORD. This is the gate of the LORD; the just shall enter it. I will give thanks to you, for you have answered me and have been my saviour. GOSPEL: MK 16:9-15 Now when he rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons. She went and told those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept. But when they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they would not believe it. After these things he appeared in another form to two of them, as they were walking into the country. And they went back and told the rest, but they did not believe them. Afterward he appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at table, and he rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who saw him after he had risen. And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Source: Official website of Archdiocese of Mumbai
