13 July -- St Teresa of the Andes, O.C.D.

In the Carmelite calendar today is the feast of St Teresa of the Andes a 20th century Carmelite nun of deep spirituality who died at 19. There is a short essay on her life here. And thanks to Mrs Vidal of the Fountain of Elias for pointing it out.)

(St Teresa is counted as the first canonized Chilean saint. But she also had roots in the lowlands of Scotland; her grandmother was an Armstrong.)
