Today we celebrate one of our biggest feast days of the year, the Solemnity of St Teresa of Avila, who founded our Discalced Carmelite way of life.

St Teresa taught that prayer is like sharing between friends and that we can pray wherever we are, however busy we are, just by taking a moment to remember the presence of Jesus alongside us.
"Whoever lives in the presence of so good a friend and excellent a leader, who went ahead of us to be the first to suffer, can endure all things. The Lord helps us, strengthens us, and never fails; He is a true friend."

To read a longer extract from her 'Life' and other prayers and quotes, please see our previous blog post for the feast day:
