Carmelite Quote

St. Teresa of Jesus of the Andes:

After my operation ( her appendix was removed), my life began to point more clearly toward Carmel. I celebrated my fifteenth birthday and decided to seal my gift to Christ with a vow of chastity. Of course, I sought the counsel of my confessor. He allowed me to do this for only nine days but said that it could be renewed afterwards. I chose the Feast of the Immaculate Conception to make my vow.
