A Teresa shrine in India

The Communicationes, bulletin sent out from Rome to Secular Carmelites with news from around the world makes fascinating reading. Today I learn that there is a shrine of St Teresa in a place called Mahe which is one of the most visited shrines in India. It is also one of the oldest shrines in India. An Italian Carmelite missionary called Father Ignatius of St Hippolitus founded a mission in Mahe in 1723. A Christian community grew up and the shrine of St Teresa of Avila was built in 1736. So in a few years' time it will be 300 years old. Catholic history is so rich in these stories!
