The Spain of Blessed Francisco Palau was particularly marked by civil wars and ideological struggles. The Church was targeted and persecuted. In this difficult context, Palau’s life was marked by much suffering, exile, and persecution by both the civil and Church authorities. However, it was in the midst of his sufferings that Palau discovered deep truths that transformed his life and united him more closely to Jesus and his Church. Father Baptiste Sauvage, a French Discalced Carmelite and one of the foremost authorities on Bl. Francisco Palau, will explore in his presentation the life of this faithful son of St Teresa of Avila, highlighting the significance of his deep mystical teachings and their relevance for us today.
