Fernando Millan Romeral, O.Carm., Prior General of the Carmelites, shared his thoughts on the meaning and relevance of St. Teresa's 5th Centenary.  The following speakers presented topics in their line of expertise:  Fr. Leopold Glueckert, O.Carm.on "St. Teresa's Historical Context", Keith Egan, TOC on "St. Teresa's Carmelite Character", and Barbara Mujica of Georgetown University delivered a presentation on the powerful women of St. Teresa's First Communities.  At the end of the conferences, an hour-long round table discussions with the presenters followed.

The day concluded with the Eucharistic Celebration of today's solemnity with Prior General Fernando Millan Romeral, the main celebrant.

The participants and some visitors from local parishes attended a special musical presentation on the Interior Castle performed by a group of artists especially commissioned for the show.
