St Teresa-of Avila

     The Spanish language (with English Subtitles) DVD miniseries, St Teresa-of Avila, is informative and entertaining. St. Teresa's early life, her family's response to her vocation and the turmoil she faced throughout her humble service to Jesus are beautifully portrayed by Miss Concha Velasco. Admirable was this saint's undaunted fortitude, as she lead a reform within the Carmelite Order of nuns during a politically precarious time in the history of Spain. Her vigorous scriptural studies, divinely inspired writings and intense prayer life earned her the honor of Doctor of the Church. As Catholics, it is a holy assistance to have such a wonderful saint to emulate as we walk through our daily lives with Jesus.
