Description

Saint Teresa of Ávila

Feast Day: October 15th.

The name has Greek origins and means ‘hunt, prey’.

In her youth, Teresa was frivolous and cheerful, so her father sent her to a convent to calm her spirit. While reading the letters of Saint Jerome, she was inspired and decided to enter the Carmelite convent. There, she often visited the parlor, learned humility, and taught others about prayer and meditation. Initially, she didn’t feel worthy to serve God, but over time, she overcame her spiritual lukewarmness and became a great reformer of the Carmelite order according to the original rules.

Patroness of writers, Carmelite communities, Spain, the cities of Ciudad de México, Ávila, Alba de Tormes, and Naples; protector against heart diseases, migraines, and spiritual crises.

Variations of the name: Teresa, Theresa, Therese, Teri, Terri, Terrie, Terry, Tess, Tessa, Tessie, Tracee, Tracey, Traci, Tracie, Tracy, Tressa.
