St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582) entered an order of contemplative Carmelite nuns despite strong opposition from her father. She suffered greatly from illness, and is remembered as a great mystic who wrote of how God desires to be found within the "interior castle" of every soul. She is one of only three female Doctors of the Church.
