Profile

Franciscan tertiary by age 20. She wanted to enter religious life, but her family strongly opposed it. With eight other women she took the veil as part of the new community of Sisters of Saint Francis of Perpetual Adoration, and became its director, taking the name Mother Mary Teresa. By the time of her death the order had sisters all over the world, and had established schools, hospitals, and orphanages.
