Product Description

Carmelites around the world are celebrating 2015 as the 500th Centenary of St. Teresa of Avila's birth. In honor of Our Holy Mother St. Teresa, I am offering for sale Volume 2 of her collected works. It contains personal favorites of 'The Interior Castle' and 'The Way of Perfection.' Both offer solid insight into St. Teresa's relationship with Jesus and her suggestions for our spiritual growth.

"This volume contains two of Teresa's most popular works: The Way of Perfection and The Interior Castle. Shortly after writing The Book of Her Life for her confessor, St. Teresa wrote The Way of Perfection at the request of her nuns who were eager to learn about prayer and contemplation. Throughout this work she teaches her nuns about prayer and also teaches us. Toward the end of her life, after she had experienced both the spiritual betrothal and spiritual marriage, Teresa wrote The Interior Castle, her own panoramic view of her relationship with God, from the lowest stages to the highest. Teresa here demonstrates her great gift for writing about that relationship and attracting us to explore the possibility of pursuing it. Along with these two classics, Volume Two also includes one of Teresa's minor works, her Meditations on the Song of Songs. Includes general and biblical index."

Translated from the critical edition by Kiernan Kavanaugh, OCD and Otilio Rodriguez, OCD, (1980). Includes notes, general and biblical index, with 8 pages of photos. 554 pages.
