St. Teresa d'Avila

Teresa d'Avila (1515-1582) is the saint of the day. She was the directoress of her Carmelite monastery and sought to reform the Order during a time of Church opulence and sluggishness. She is known for her writings, many of them mystical in nature and is credited with the words to this piece "Nada Te Turbe" (Do not be troubled).
