Saint Teresa of Jesus
I love St. Teresa of Avila, as a matter of fact, one could say she is my favorite saint (though Padre Pio runs a close second). She is also my patron saint. Soon after my conversion (which my mom believes was obtained through St. Teresa's intercession) I went to the bookstore to pick out a book and I asked the Lord for his help in choosing a good one. While browsing in the christianity section, a book fell off the shelf and hit my foot. (Very funny, Lord.....beside my foot would have been just fine.) I bent down to pick it up and when I looked at it I had to laugh because it was the autobiography of St. Teresa . So, I bought it and am enjoying it still!
