    October 27: The city of Avila appears much as it did in the sixteenth century with cobble stoned streets surrounded by a high wall to defend against enemies. St. Teresa was born here in the early 1500’s. As a young girl, she joined the Carmelite Order but soon found that the Order had relaxed its rules and lived very much as the outside world. St. Teresa spent her life traveling throughout Spain reforming old convents and forming new ones. In her autobiography, she tells about an angel who thrust an arrow into her heart, leaving her “on fire with a great love of God”. 330 year later, when her body was exhumed, it was found that she had a perforation of the heart. It was St. Teresa who convinced St. John of the Cross to stay with the Carmelite Order and to establish a monastery for reformed friars. Dinner and overnight in Avila.
