Today is her feast. Her time much similar for ours, confusion about the liturgy and the faith.

She did not judged others, simply prayed first by himself, later with her companions.
Here's an interest piece of trivia about St. Teresa of Avilla.  She died at some hour between October 4 and October 15, 1582, the night of the Gregorian Shift in Spain.

According to her hagiography in the Office: "sub columbae specie purissimam animam Deo reddidit, annos nata sexaginta septem, anno millesimo quingentesimo octogesimo secundo, Idibus Octobris, juxta Kalendarii Romani emendationem."

In the 'species' of a dove she gave back her soul to God at age 67, in 1582, on 'Idus of October' (15th October) according to the corrected Roman Kalendar

In the Gregorian Shift, October 4, 1582 was followed by October 15, 1582.  She died at some point during that night, so it's not clear whether she died on October 4 or October 15.
