Less than twenty years before Teresa was born in 1515,
Columbus opened up the Western Hemisphere to European colonization. Two
years after she was born, Luther started the Protestant Reformation. Out
of all of this change came Teresa pointing the way from outer turmoil
to inner peace.
Teresa's father was rigidly
honest and pious, but he may have carried his strictness to extremes.
Teresa's mother loved romance novels but because her husband objected to
these fanciful books, she hid the books from him. This put Teresa in
the middle -- especially since she liked the romances too. Her father
told her never to lie but her mother told her not to tell her father.
Later she said she was always afraid that no matter what she did she was going to do everything wrong.
she was five years old she convinced her older brother that they
should, as she says in her Life, "go off to the land of the Moors and
beg them, out of love of God, to cut off our heads there." They got as
far as the road from the city before an uncle found them and brought
them back. Some people have used this story as an early example of
sanctity, but this author think it's better used as an early example of
her ability to stir up trouble.
After this incident she led a fairly ordinary
life, though she was convinced that she was a horrible sinner. As a
teenager, she cared only about boys and clothes and flirting and
rebelling -- like other teenagers throughout the ages. When she was 16,
her father decided she was out of control and sent her to a convent. At
first she hated it but eventually she began to enjoy it -- partly
because of her growing love for God, and partly because the convent was a lot less strict than her father.
Still, when the time came for her to choose between marriage and religious life, she had a tough time
making the decision. She'd watched a difficult marriage ruin her
mother. On the other hand being a nun didn't seem like much fun. When
she finally chose religious life, she did so because she though that it
was the only safe place for someone as prone to sin as she was.
