Agustina Medina Muñoz is 99 years old and has been a Discalced Carmelite cloistered nun in Chile, for almost 80 years.
In the religious order, she took the name Francisca Teresa of the Child Jesus of the Holy Face in honor of the French saint and doctor of the Church through whom her vocation matured.
“They say I’m 99 years old. It’s hard to believe it. My life has passed so quickly,” the nun said in a testimony published in the Archdiocese of Concepción’s magazine Nuestra Iglesia (Our Church).
The nun's testimony which the Carmelite sisters took down based on things she has said and then approved, says that Francisca Teresa was born on March 23, 1923, and that she is the first of eight siblings.
