Oldest living cloistered nun meets Pope in Spain
August 22, 2011
During his visit to Spain for World Youth Day, Pope Benedict XVI met with the world’s oldest living cloistered nun.
Sister Teresita, who is 103 years old, probably does not qualify as a “youth.” But she was presented to the Holy Father on August 19, when he met with young women religious in Madrid.
Sister Teresita entered the Buenafuente del Sistal convent on Holy Saturday in 1927: coincidentally, the day that Joseph Ratzinger was born.
