St. Teresa of Avila

From $130.00

This beautiful work of sacred art honours St. Teresa of Avila, considered a Doctor of the Church, thus becoming one of the first women to receive this honour. The image of Saint Teresa writing by the illumination of the Holy Spirit is finely rendered on canvas by the skilful hands of our artist with an original artistic technique, using the best materials in a totally handmade process of creation. This beautiful work represents Saint Teresa as an example of a contemplative and reforming woman. In her person, in her prayer, in her life, in her reform efforts, in all the people she touched, she was a woman for others, a woman who inspired and gave life.

St. Teresa of Avila

Teresa lived in an age of exploration as well as political, social, and religious upheaval. It was the 16th century, a time of turmoil and reform. She was born before the Protestant Reformation and died almost 20 years after the closing of the Council of Trent.

The gift of God to Teresa in and through which she became holy and left her mark on the Church and the world is threefold: She was a woman; she was a contemplative; she was an active reformer.

Her writings, especially the Way of Perfection and The Interior Castle, have helped generations of believers.

In 1970, the Church gave her the title she had long held in the popular mind: Doctor of the Church. She and St. Catherine of Siena were the first women so honored.
