Spend an evening reflecting on the lives and spirituality of two of the four women officially proclaimed Doctors of the Church: the Spanish Teresa of Avila (1515-1582) and the French Therese of Lisieux (1873-1897).
These two beloved Carmelite mystics, separated by nearly four centuries, imagined new ways of understanding Holy Mystery and invite us to do so also.
This is part of Wisdom Ways’ celebration of feasts and festivals honoring women in the Christian tradition. Feast days: October 1, Theresa of Lisieux; October 16, Teresa of Avila.
Mary Kaye Medinger is a lifelong educator, writer, editor, spiritual director and retreat leader with a particular interest in women’s spirituality, especially Mariology. A consociate of the Sisters of St. Joseph, she has spent nearly 40 years in various ministerial positions in parish, diocesan and ecumenical settings.
