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.

Thought of the day
    20 Sept 2021 - Memorial of Saints Andrew Kim Tae-gon, Priest LECTIONARY: 449 FIRST READING: Ezr 1:1-6 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom and also put it in writing: “Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he has charged me to build him a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever is among you of all his people, may his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and rebuild the house of the Lord, the God of Israel—he is the God who is in Jerusalem. And let each survivor, in whatever place he sojourns, be assisted by the men of his place with silver and gold, with goods and with beasts, besides freewill offerings for the house of God that is in Jerusalem.” Then rose up the heads of the fathers' houses of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests and the Levites, everyone whose spirit God had stirred to go up to rebuild the house of the Lord that is in Jerusalem. And all who were about them aided them with vessels of silver, with gold, with goods, with beasts, and with costly wares, besides all that was freely offered. PSALM: 126:1b-2ab, 2cd-3, 4-5, 6 Response: The Lord has done marvels for us. When the LORD brought back the captives of Zion, we were like men dreaming. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with rejoicing. Then they said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.” The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad indeed. Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the torrents in the southern desert. Those that sow in tears shall reap rejoicing. Although they go forth weeping, carrying the seed to be sown, They shall come back rejoicing, carrying their sheaves. GOSPEL: Luke 8:16-18 “No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light. For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care then how you hear, for to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he thinks that he has will be taken away.” Source: Archdiocese of Mumbai official website (https://www.archdioceseofbombay.org/)
