St Teresa of Avila

St Teresa's doctoral hat, bestowed by Pope Paul VI in 1970

Vestments embroidered by
St Teresa of Avila

Christ has no body on earth but ours,
no hands but ours, no feet but ours.
Ours are the eyes through which
the compassion of Christ looks out upon the world,
ours are the feet with which he goes about doing good,
ours are the hands with which he blesses his people.
[St Teresa of Avila]
