The whole town was in an uproar. "Let Teresa keep quiet in her own convent," said the townspeople, "instead of trying to turn everything upside down!" What was the use, they asked, of going back to the Primitive Rule of Carmel with all its hardships, its solitude and its silence? Teresa was mad to think of leaving a convent where she was so comfortable. But Teresa knew the plan was from God, and her spiritual director had confirmed this. Teresa would not be turned aside by the opinions of anyone else.

Such was the soul of the great St Teresa of Avila, reformer of the Carmelite Order. In her youth Teresa had all but forced herself to become a nun, and in the ensuing years she would also make many other courageous decisions. Her life would include remarkable mystical graces, fears of delusion by Satan, a vision of her potential place in Hell, many travels to found new Carmelite convents, work with other great Saints and dealings with difficult persons.

This is the story of the great St. Teresa of Avila, who was a woman of great heart and immense common sense and who was one of the remarkable women in the history of the world. She reformed Carmel -- thus making the Carmelite Order into a mother of Saints -- and leaving a tremendous mark on the Catholic Church even to this day.
