St. Teresa of Avila

About Saint Teresa of Avila

  • Saint Teresa Avila was born on March 28, 1515 in Avila, Spain.  She was named Teresa Sanchez de Cepeda y Ahumada.
  • Saint Teresa was raised as a Christian and at 7 years old, ran away with her brother to become martyrs.  Her uncle found the two children and brought them home.
  • At the age of twenty, Saint Teresa left her parents’ home and entered the Carmelite convent near Avila.

  • While in the convent, Saint Teresa was very sickly.  The only thing that eased her suffering was following writing of the mystics of the middle ages.  She followed the advice given by the mystics, examining her conscience, spiritual meditation, and contemplation.  Saint Teresa also studied the works of St. Peter of Alcantara and Ignatious Loyola.
  • Through her meditations during her illness, Saint Teresa said that she became one with God.  She said that she realized she had to give herself completely to God.
  • In 1556, Saint Teresa began torturing herself in many ways in order to gain spiritual truth.
  • Saint Teresa had visions of Jesus for two years and also the vision of a cherub piercing her heart with a fiery lance.  This caused Saint Teresa Avila to have severe pain. This vision inspired Saint Teresa of Avila throughout her life and became her motto:  Lord, either let me suffer of let me die.
  • Saint Teresa of Avila founded seventeen convents during her life, all dedicated to living life in absolute poverty and renouncing any property.  She revived strict rules of going shoeless and ceremonial flogging.
  • Saint Teresa of Avila died on October 15, 1582 from illness.  This day is celebrated as the feast of Saint Teresa of Avila.
  • Saint Teresa of Avila was canonized by Pope Gregory XV in 1622.  She was named the patron saint of Spain and became a Doctor of the Church in 1970.

Saint Teresa of Avila Remembered

Saint Teresa is remembered by Catholics today for her great works of reformation in the Church and her mystic revelations.  Many Catholics wear a Saint Teresa Avila medal or a Saint Teresa Avila pendant, praying for her intercession in helping them cast away the devil and earthly temptations.

Nada te Turbe
Let nothing trouble you,
let nothing make you afraid.
All things pass away.
