Saint Teresa of Jesus. Doctor of the Church
Paul VI proclaimed St. Teresa of Jesus a Doctor of the Church, the first woman to receive this title. In his homily at the ceremony on September 27, 1970, Paul VI referred to her as "this saint, so singular and so great, arouses in our spirit a wealth of thoughts. We see her before us as an exceptional woman, as a religious who, wrapped in humility, penance and simplicity, radiates around her the flame of her human vitality and her dynamic spirituality; we see her, moreover, as a reformer and founder of a historic and distinguished religious Order, as a brilliant and fruitful writer, as a teacher of spiritual life, as an incomparable contemplative and tireless active soul".
