Spain Pilgrimage with Fr. Leo - Madrid - Avila (Teresian Jubilee Year)

Day 4 - Marid, Avila

We depart for Avila the town known for its city walls and St. Teresa. Pope Francis has granted a Jubilee Year in Spain to mark the 400th anniversary of the beatification of St. Teresa of Avila. The Teresian Jubilee Year will run from Oct. 25, 2014, to Oct. 15, 2015, and will culminate in the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the saint's birth. Throughout the year, the faithful will be able to obtain a plenary indulgence according to the normal conditions of sacramental Confession, receiving Communion and praying for the intentions of the Pope. Pope Francis will also grant a papal blessing to all those who obtain the indulgency during the Teresian Jubilee Year and are “truly repentant, moved by charity and have attended the sacred rites.” Our visit includes the church where St. Teresa had frequent visions and ecstatic experiences, the monastery of Incarnation and the Monastery of St. Joseph. We see the Convent of St. Teresa which was built after her canonization over the house where she was born. The convent contains her relics, along with those of her friend St John of the Cross. We celebrate Mass in Avila. Overnight in Avila with dinner at the hotel. (B.D.)
