for all the baptized, a new way of responding to the call to evangelize
January 11, 1924
A defining moment in TA history.
With the Pontifical Approval, the Church endorses the experience lived since the beginning of the Work of the Academies in 1911.
A vision of the future is anticipated: the organization of the laity around an identity and a mission.
The novelty presented by the Teresian Association became more evident when the space was sought to fit it, canonically, among the lay associations of the Church that existed at that time.
1924 is an affirmation of the sensus Ecclesiae of Pedro Poveda and his Work.
