The Pope Francis encourages to know the life of St. Teresa

The Pope Francis has encouraged today all Spaniards to know the life of Santa Teresa on the V centenary of her birth and to preserve and enrich their “precious” legacy that the Pope summarized in four ways: the joy, prayer, fraternity and time.

In a letter sent on the occasions of the V centenary of Santa Teresa´s birth, the Pope reminded that St. Teresa of Jesus, who had the path as her life and work, was born in Avila (Spain) in March 28, 1515.

According to the letter read out by the Bishop of Avila, Jesus Garcia Burillo, before more than 6,000 faithful who attended the Eucharist said that the joy of the Saint “is a path you have to walk a lifetime and that is not reached the easy shortcut that avoids the resignation, the suffering or the cross, but that is found suffering efforts and pain”.
