Item description for Distractions in Prayer: Blessing or Curse?: St. Teresa of Avila's Teachings in the Interior Castle by Vilma Seelaus...
Overview A great deal of commentary has been written on this archetypal work of Teresa's, but no one has approached the work as Sister Vilma does. If we have read The Interior Castle before, we will read it now as though it is an entirely new book. Sister Vilma takes us through the castle from the viewpoint of our distractions. Distractions are, after all, the major problem in anyone's prayer, and this is why is so important to have a commentator of the author's depth guide us through Teresa's castle from this one perspective: distractions, their meaning for us in our spiritual lives. It is Sister Vilma's conviction that Teresa's insights to the swelling places of the soul alert us to the meaning of our distractions. As we reflect with her, we begin to see how instead of being a curse, our distractions are a blessing, a visitation from God. Journeying again through the castle and looking at distractions and their meaning through this prism of the seven dwelling places, we will listen with fresh insight to the voices of these distractions and will then even learn to welcome them as integral to God's transforming process.
