On March 28, 2015, the entire Teresian family of the Order of Discalced Carmelites, nuns, friars and secular members, in union with the whole Church, will celebrate the 500th birthday of St. Teresa of Avila, Doctor of the Church and reformer of Carmel. To mark this significant anniversary and as a birthday gift to St. Teresa, the Superior General of our Order, Fr. Saverio Cannistrá has called all communities of Carmelite nuns, friars, and Secular Order members throughout the world to offer a world hour of prayer for peace on Thursday, March 26, 2015. Our Holy Father Pope Francis has looked kindly on this initiative and will himself lead it with an hour of prayer on that day, making this initiative an ecclesial event.
