Follow in the footsteps of Saint Teresa of vila
Saint Teresa of vila, a 16th-century Carmelite nun and Doctor of the Church, was a courageous reformer who withstood tremendous opposition to revive the primitive monastic rule and conditions of poverty, hardship and solitude for religious. With Saint John of the Cross, Teresa became an influential spiritual director and left for posterity a series of classic writings, including The Way of Perfection and The Interior Castle, her fullest statement on prayer and contemplation.
Pray without ceasing
Saint Teresa, as spiritual guide and director, places prayer at the center of our relationship with God. She recognizes the different kinds of prayer that may sustain us over the course of our lives, not only the mystical prayer for which she is best known. In addition to steadfast trust in God, Teresa insists upon intellectual engagement and good judgment as cornerstones of the holy life, objectives this 15-day journey will help you achieve. Saint Teresa of vila will be a faithful mentor in your spiritual education.
