ADPaul This is the sanctuary of St. Teresa of Los Andes, the first saint of Chile. Crowds of people visit this place to seek the help of the saint, in their needs and to be inspired by her life. The life of St. Teresa of Los Andes was very short. She lived only twenty years. Yet she reached the pinnacle of holiness within that short life. One needn’t live a long life to leave a deep imprint. Teresa of Los Andes is proof of that. She grew in the early 1900’s in Santiago, Chile. Her name was Juana Fernandez. By all accounts, Juanita led a typical childhood, embracing her education, learning to play the piano, experiencing a close relationship with her sister.
