Notes by MARIA STELLA MARZANO, O. CARM.
Blessed Maria Teresa Scrilli (1825-1889), foundress of the Sisters of the Institute of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, composed this account of her life until her age at that time of 35 years. As she relates the events of her life, she also reveals her spiritual growth and development. This autograph, prepared and translated on the occasion of Maria's 150 anniversary of birth, offers a fascinating look into the life of a woman who strove to faithfully live her vocation.
