The International Teresian Meeting brought together one thousand pilgrims in Avila


The city of Avila received around one thousand pilgrims, from the five continents, who arrived in the city where St Teresa was born to participate in the International Teresian Meeting.

There were friars, nuns, religious from various congregations affiliated to the Order, Secular Carmel and diverse movements and groups of Carmel, as well as of Teresian spirituality. Groups from 20 countries arrived at Avila.

Moments of prayer and celebration gave the finishing touch to the occasion, which offered to the participants an experience of the present-day importance and universality of the Teresian charism, spread throughout the five continants and finding form in a variety of social situations and ecclesial realities.

This meeting served to reveal the universality of the Teresian charism and to establish a dialogue that allowed each religious family to draw close to the distinct realities in which the other congregations are immersed.
Every morning there was a time called "shared table" for dialoguing on the specific characteristics of the charism of each congregation and how they face the challenge of evangelization in their respective places of origin.

Taking part in the International Teresian Meeting were the Vicar General of the Order, Fr Agustí Borrell, Fr Daniel Chowning, Definitor General, the Iberian Provincial, Fr Miguel Márquez, the Provincial of Portugal, Fr Joaquim Teixera and Generals of congregations affiliated to the Order.

The pilgrims visited the La Santa church, built in the house where Teresa of Jesus was born, the Incarnation monastery and the monastery of St Joseph, the first monastery of the Discalced Carmelite reform.

Teresian music for drawing near to the message of Teresa of Jesus

The one thousand pilgrims of the International Teresian Meeting also had an encounter with music and dance. In fact, a festival of performing arts was celebrated in which took part 20 artists from 10 distinct nationalities, who performed the musical Para Vos Nací (For you was I born).

In this regard, the coordinator of musical activities for the V Centenary, Rogelio Cabado, pointed out that in the Meeting, groups from Brasil, China, India, Spain, the United States, Portugal, Nigeria, Japan and various countries of Latin America had taken part.

As Rogelio Cabado commented, "Music is of use in enabling us to draw close to Teresa. Her message is very much alive today and the proof of this is that she continues to inspire a multitude of artist everywhere in the world."

The common denominator for all the artists taking part was love for Teresa of Jesus and the conviction that her message is useful for the society of the XXI century.
On the other hand, music and dance played an important part in several of the workshops celebrated. For example, the group from Brasil directed a session on prayerful dance.

Finally, the musical "Para Vos Naci" was put on, in which more than 120 artists took part.
