St. Teresa of Avila (2746 words)
Teresa was the "most beloved of them all." She was of medium height, large rather than small, and generally well proportioned.
Teresa's last foundations were: at Palencia and Soria in 1581, at Burgos in 1582; the most difficult of all, Granada (1582), was entrusted to the Venerable Anne of Jesus.
Her Way of Perfection Teresa addressed to her nuns, teaching them therein the major virtues that demand their solicitude, casting further light on the practice of prayer, and using the Pater Noster as a vehicle for teaching prayer at greater depth.
Santa Teresa de Ávila (5996 words)
Teresa y su hermano consideraban que los mártires habían comprado la gloria a un precio muy bajo y resolvieron partir al país de los moros con la esperanza de morir por la fe.
Santa Teresa pasó cinco años con sus trece religiosas en el convento de san José, precediendo a sus hijas no sólo en la oración, sino también en los trabajos humildes, como la limpieza de la casa y el hilado.
Teresa, viendo que era imposible reducirla a la humanidad propia de su profesión, ordenó a sus religiosas que se trasladasen a Segovia y dejasen a la princesa su casa de Pastrana.
