Carmelite Thought for the Day! – Our word for the journey today comes from Saint Teresa of the Andes. Juanita Fernández Solar was born in Santiago (Chile) on 13 July 1900. On May 7, 1919, aged 19, Juanita entered the Carmel of Los Andes and received the name Sister Teresa of Jesus. She died a year later – making perpetual vows on her deathbed. She is renowned for her joyfulness, youth and fortitude in suffering.
