This is my self-chosen patron saint, Teresa of Avila. I admire and love this doctor of the church and founder of the discalced Carmelites tremendously. I dedicate this blog to her. Thank you for joining me for Advent season. I usually don't publish on this blog until September. May the Lord bless you in this Christmastide and through the entire liturgical year. For more about Catholicism, faith, Holy Days, Sacraments, saints, Jesus, Our Lady, please visit me at Catholic Activities. For lenten devotions, please visit my Lent Activities blog. Ad Majoram Dei Gloriam.
