St. Teresa of Avila Comments

Less than twenty years before Teresa was born in 1515, Columbus opened up the Western Hemisphere to European colonization. Two years after she was born, Luther started the Protestant Reformation. Out of all of this change came Teresa pointing the way from outer turmoil to inner peace. Teresa's father was rigidly honest and pious, but he may have carried his strictness to extremes.

    To the girls who chose Theresa for their confirmation name:

    Good on you! My mother was named after St. Theresa of Avila, was proud of it all the days of her life and, in many ways, was like St. Theresa. The world could use a few more like her and I think you young women just might fill the bill.

    i think she is an amazing saint. I am choosing her for my confirmation saint. I like her because she had a lot of trouble following God when she was younger, but then learned to put god first. plus i love reading and her symbol is a book. and i get lots of headaches, so maybe she can help me :)

    i think that st.teresa of avila is a great saint, i hope that i will emulate her in my life in some good way for the greater glory of god. i feel really sorry for all my sins and i hope god will forgive me for my sins and ignorance, i will pray to st. teresa so that god's plan for me will be fulfilled in my life.............and i may not be worried about the future or past. by the way, i am 24 and i still did not get my confirmation....i am praying to st.teresa of avila that i may get a confirmation as soon as possible and that my confirmation name will be st. teresa for sure.
