  • She was said to be very beautiful, extroverted, and charming. Like many children of the 16th century, Teresa and her brother Rodrigo studied the lives of the saints. When Teresa was seven,  she and Rodrigo ran away from home. They had planned to die for Christ in Moorish territory, but an uncle caught the children and returned them to their home.

  • St Teresa devoted much of the rest of her life to travelling around Spain setting up new convents based on the ancient monastic traditions.  St Teresa also had to frequently contend with difficult living conditions and her frail health. However, she never let these obstacles dissuade her from her life’s task. She eventually died on October 4 at the age of 67.
