.- The Archbishop of Guatemala, Cardinal Rodolfo Quezada Toruno, has opened the cause of beatification for Carmelite Sister Maria Teresa of the Most Holy Trinity.  The ceremony took place at the archdiocesan cathedral and was attended by members of her religious congregation, family members and devotees of Sister Maria Teresa.

Her Life

Sister Maria Teresa was born in Guatemala on April 15, 1784.  She was baptized as Maria Teresa de Jesus Anastasia Cayetana.  She took the Carmelite habit on November 21, 1807, at the convent of St. Teresa in Guatemala, which no longer exists.

Those who knew her said that from the time she was a young girl, she was very spiritual.  She died in 1841.

Sister Maria Teresa’s reputation for holiness has spread quickly and many Guatemalans have a special devotion to her.
