Marie du jour 2021, May 3: St. Teresa of Avila

On the eve of the feast of St. Sebastian, the first year in which I was prioress at the Incarnation, at the beginning of the Salve Regina, I saw the Mother of God descend with a great multitude of angels and sit in the prioress’s choir stall where there was a statue of our Lady.

Avila, Monastery of the Incarnation, “Upper choir where Santa Teresa prayed” is an engraving from the book “The Third Centenary of Saint Teresa of Jesus” (Vicente de la Fuente, 1882).
