HOLY SOULS – Day 7

HOLY SOULS – Day 7

Sr Teresa of Jesus – Marthe  Teyssier de  Savy  – was born in 1850 and entered Carmel in Paris with the express desire to  join  in the  Foundation of the  London  Carmel of which  she  had  already  heard. She  made  her  Profession  only  a few weeks before  the sisters set out, so was still only a  professed novice at the  time. She had  noted  artistic talents  which were   a valuable asset  in the  community. She also  had   the  energy and enthusiasm  to  take   an eager  part  in any  community activities,  and  led the way for  future  novices in this respect.  She was  Sacristan for  many years,  and died  March 22nd in 1924.
