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.

JER 17:5-8
Thought of the day
    February 17th, 2019 JER 17:5-8 Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 78 Reading Thus says the LORD: Cursed is the one who trusts in human beings, who seeks his strength in flesh, whose heart turns away from the LORD. He is like a barren bush in the desert that enjoys no change of season, but stands in a lava waste, a salt and empty earth. Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose hope is the LORD. He is like a tree planted beside the waters that stretches out its roots to the stream: it fears not the heat when it comes; its leaves stay green; in the year of drought it shows no distress, but still bears fruit. Responsorial Psalm PS 1:1-2, 3, 4 AND 6 R. (40:5a) Blessed are they who hope in the Lord. Blessed the man who follows not the counsel of the wicked, nor walks in the way of sinners, nor sits in the company of the insolent, but delights in the law of the LORD and meditates on his law day and night. R. Blessed are they who hope in the Lord. He is like a tree planted near running water, that yields its fruit in due season, and whose leaves never fade. Whatever he does, prospers. R. Blessed are they who hope in the Lord. Not so the wicked, not so; they are like chaff which the wind drives away. For the LORD watches over the way of the just, but the way of the wicked vanishes. R. Blessed are they who hope in the Lord. Reading 2 1 COR 15:12, 16-20 Brothers and sisters: If Christ is preached as raised from the dead, how can some among you say there is no resurrection of the dead? If the dead are not raised, neither has Christ been raised, and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is vain; you are still in your sins. Then those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are the most pitiable people of all. But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. Alleluia LK 6:23AB R. Alleluia, alleluia. Rejoice and be glad; your reward will be great in heaven. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel LK 6:17, 20-26 Jesus came down with the twelve and stood on a stretch of level ground with a great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon. And raising his eyes toward his disciples he said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for the kingdom of God is yours. Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who are now weeping, for you will laugh. Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you, and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice and leap for joy on that day! Behold, your reward will be great in heaven. For their ancestors treated the prophets in the same way. But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation. Woe to you who are filled now, for you will be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will grieve and weep. Woe to you when all speak well of you, for their ancestors treated the false prophets in this way.”
