-- From the Discalced Carmelite Proper
Bl Teresa Maria of the Cross was beatified on 19 October 1986 by John Paul II. She is the patron saint of people ridiculed for their piety.
"When I was in the world, it was enough that I was doing a fashion, because all my companions would follow. So, I thought, if they all come back to me in doing wrong, they will also come in doing good."
