Description

Born to the Spanish nobility, the daughter of Don Alonso Sanchez de Cepeda & Doña Beatriz. Crippled by disease in her youth, which led to her being well educated at home, she was cured after prayer to Saint Joseph. Her mother died when Teresa was 12, & she prayed to Our Lady to be her replacement. Her father opposed her entry to religious life, so she left home without telling anyone, & entered a Carmelite convent at the age of seventeen. Seeing her conviction to her call, her father & family consented. Soon after taking her vows Teresa became gravely ill. Her condition was aggravated by the inadequate medical help she received, & she never fully recovered her health. She began receiving visions, & was examined by Dominicans & Jesuits, including Saint Francis Borgia, who pronounced the visions to be holy & true. She considered her original house too lax in its rule, so she founded a reformed convent of Saint John of Avila. Teresa founded several houses, often against fierce opposition from local authorities.
