“Veni Creator Spiritus”

I LOVE these first two movies as they are on Carmelite saints, I have them on DVD and they are my favorites and well watched!  Surprised they still work!  The movie clips in this video are from:

1.  “Teresa of the Andes”

2. “Teresa of Avila”

3. “The Nun’s Story” (starring Audrey Hepburn) – not sure which order was the focus of this movie but it is not Carmel.

The hymn being sung in these movies are the “Veni Creator Spiritus”.  The version sung by the actress portraying Teresa of Avila in this montage is supremely moving. The statue of Our Lord depicted during his passion is the very image St. Teresa of Avila  contemplated at a significant moment in her conversion.

Here is a video of this beautiful hymn sung in Gregorian chant with the lyrics:
