Teresian feasts positively pile up in October: –14th, birth of our third daughter, Marie Therese (1984) –15th, Teresa of Avila –19th, Mother Teresa, beatification. (Is it mere coincidence that The Little Flower, Mother’s patroness, was declared Doctor of the Church on that same date in 1997?) A few other famous “Teresa’s”: —The Sixteen Blessed Teresian Martyrs of Compi�gne, generally considered to be the last victims of the French Revolution. Each of these Carmelite nuns bore some form of the name of St. Therese, co-patron of France. —St. Therese Couderc (founder, Sisters of the Cenacle, canonized 1970) –Therese Neumann von Konnersreuth, stigmatic, who served beer to American soldiers during WWII. –Sr. Francious-Therese, V.H. M. (Leonie Martin, sister of The Little Flower, who took the religious name Therese after her sister’s death.) –Sr. Teresa Benedicta Crucis, better known as St. Edith Stein. All were inspired by the original Teresa the Great, of Avila. I’ll leave it at that, even though there are many, many more. 😉 Reply Teresa October 3, 2005 - 9:55 am THANK you for the Teresian lesson!! I love being counted in that lot… don’t you?
