Two days before her death, she said to me once when we were alone: “My child, the hour of my death has come.” This pierced my heart more and more.Blessed Anne of St. Bartholomew
Last moments of St. Teresa
St. Edith Stein also notes in her biography of Saint Teresa that two days before her death, “on October 2, in accordance with her wish, Fr. Antonio heard her last confession.” Father Antonio de Jesús was St. John of the Cross’s companion at Duruelo when the two friars began the Discalced reform for the Carmelite friars.
