St. Teresa was the reformer of Carmel, mother of the Discalced Carmelite Nuns and Friars. She is the “spiritual mother” (as is engraved under her statue in the Vatican Basilica). St. Teresa is the patron of Catholic writers and was one of the first women, with Saint Catherine of Siena, to ever receive the title of Doctor of the Church (given this title in 1970).
Let nothing disturb you, nothing affright you; All things are passing, God never changes! Patient endurances attains to all things; The one who possesses God wants for no thing; God alone suffices. - St. Teresa of Avila
