    How can man murder such beautiful beings with such disrespect and arrogance. Saints always make me want to cry. What a beautiful girl.

    Wonderful article about perseverance and faith in God. My wife and I visited Avila years ago and her convent. Very spiritual journey. A great Saint and Doctor of the church.
