Reviews - What do customers think about A Retreat With Teresa of Avila: Living by Holy Wit (Retreat With-- Series)?
Teresa of Avila relevant today... Sep 25, 2007
The books in the 'Retreat with' series, published by St. Anthony Messenger Press, have become wonderful devotional tools in my spiritual toolkit! Each book provides a general background of a saint (or v. godly person,) the context in which they lived, and 7 brief sessions in which they 'serve' as Spiritual director (culled from their teachings/writings/ and/or life history.) Each chapter ends with suggested reflection activities and a closing prayer. These are great tools for individual retreats, daily devotions or group studies - and, at 90 or so pages, very easy to read, take along on trips etc. I so appreciate how the editors make the challenges & struggles of these saints (of yesteryear) so relevant to our struggles today.
In this book, series editor Gloria Hutchinson does a great job pulling the best bits of St. Teresa of Avila's human and humorous side into hard-hitting challenges for us to live by today. As a BIG fan of St. Teresa (her "Life", the Interior Castle etc.), I really appreciated this format that made me laugh, reflect, pray - and thank God for such an amazing woman of faith who still draws us closer to the heart of Jesus today!
