Sister Teresita: 84 Years in the Same Cistercian Cloister

I wish they would leave her with God in silence and peace.

Rorate Caeli: Sr. Teresita has spent 84 of her 103 years within the walls of the cloistered convent of Buenafuente del Sistal (Guadalajara) [Castille-La Mancha, Spain], which gives her the right to be considered as one of unbreakable faith. A member of the Cistercian order, and a superior for over 20 years, Sr. Teresita will break her record of permanence inside an enclosed monastery to be received by Pope Benedict XVI for World Youth Day.

    Wow, she entered the convent nine years before the Spanish Civil War started!
