St. Teresa of Los Andes

April 12

Inspired by St. Th erese of
Lisieux’s Story of a Soul, Teresa
entered a Carmelite convent at
the age of 19. She died about a
year later, but the holiness of
her life and the diary she left
behind inspired others. At age
15 she wrote in her diary:
“I am God’s. He created me
and is my beginning and my
end. If I am to become entirely
His, I must do His will. From
now on, I put myself in Your
Divine Hands. Do what You
like with me.”
