Feast of St. Teresa of Avila

Tomorrow is the Feast of St. Teresa of Avila.

I'm too tired to come up with a brilliant post about this special saint.

I love her!

She means the world to me.

I named my newborn daughter after her.

She is the flawed, flighty, overly-social butterfly who got herself into heaven through the pure miracle of God's grace.

She is the saint who gives me the greatest hope that I can get myself to heaven too.

St. Teresa of Avila, I love you!


  1. Happy Feast Day!! My dear adopted daughter is Teresa as well. She'll be 4 Tuesday. She came into our life 18 years after our other 2 children. She's a survivor and a fighter too. She's such a symbol of God's grace to me. Teresa of Avila seemed the perfect patron saint for her. We added Teresa as her first name when we finalized the adoption last year.
