ST. TERESA, who was born in Avila in Spain in the year 1515, was raised very conscientiously by her parents, who belonged to the high nobility.
When she was twelve years old her mother died. Teresa’s grief was great. Then one day she knelt down before a picture of the Blessed Virgin and prayed: “O Mother of mercy, I choose thee now to be my mother, receive a poor orphan among thy children.”
But it took a long illness, a stay with a saintly uncle, and the reading of the letters of St. Jerome to turn the mind of the maiden entirely from earthly things and move her to serve God in the religious life.
On All Souls’ Day in 1533 she was admitted into the Carmelite convent at Avila. On the way to the convent she was seized by such a violent revulsion against the religious life that her whole body shook. She looked upon this as a temptation, and kept on her way. No sooner had she put on the habit of the Order than an unspeakable peace filled her heart and soul.
