TRANSVERBERATION OF ST. TERESA'S HEART STATUE
Each year on August 26th, Carmelites around the world celebrate the feast of the Transverberation of St. Teresa of Avila, Virgin, and Reformer of the Carmelite Order. The transverberation is a mystical grace wherein the Saint's heart was pierced with a "dart of love" by an angel. This statue, made of cold-cast bronze, beautifully depicts this rare mystical grace. St. Teresa herself recounts the experience in chapter 29 of the autobiography of "Her Life" (which can be found in these books: #87621 and #1518 for more information). Statue measures 8 1/2” H.
