  1. Thanks for sharing this video!
    Oh, she is great!! There is still fire in these ashes!!! She is not a fake woman!
    Today she's been interviewed in RAC1, the most listened radio program in Catalonia, and she is one of the bravest women I've heard! Just by saying the truth openly she has become a reference for many in my country!
    I'm waiting to see the end of the video.
    Catalunya i el món necessitaven escoltar la veu d'una dona així! T'estimem, Teresa!

  2. You're welcome. It's an honor, although hard to keep up with our sister and all her media appearances! BTW, Teresa Forcades fans should note that I have created a "Forcades" label and applied it retroactively to all the relevant posts so it makes it easier to find everything we have posted about or by her.

  3. This is what Sor Teresa is saying, this it the great chalange:
    "Compassion is the principled determination to put ourselves into the place of the other and it lies at the heart of all truly religious and ethical systems."
