Product Description

Teresa of Avila was a Carmelite nun who was born in Spain in 1515. As a young girl with an active imagination and great love for books, she was profoundly affected by her mother’s death, which left her emotionally empty. In despair, she threw herself before an image of the Virgin Mary and begged her to be her new mother. This extreme devotion to the Mother Mary soon gave way to an interest in fashion as her beauty blossomed. With it, the passion for reading, writing, and romance was rekindled. Teresa’s concerned father sent her away to boarding school at an Augustinian convent. However, when Teresa fell dreadfully ill with malaria, the nuns sent for her father who came to take her home. Recuperating from the serious illness and suffering from headaches, Teresa read a book given to her from her uncle called The Third Spiritual Alphabet by Francisco de Osuna, from which she learned the practice of the prayer of recollection.* Though previously not interested in reading about such things, her illness had transformed her into a more serious kind of girl. She soon learned to practice “the prayer of quiet,”** a state where the soul is completely absorbed.

Teresa of Avila

A great short and concise read about Teresa of Avila, most informative. She definitely led the practice of mysticism and Spiritual Formation with her "mindful" prayers. And the levitation, I believe she was engaged with demons and powers of darkness. She was called in by those in authority for an inquisition to have details of these events explained, which didn't change anything.
How could she be canonized as a saint with this pseudo-orgasmic sculpture... the marble statue "The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa" by Bernini in Rome which is very erotic and it was said it was due to her autobiography, which I have not read, maybe I should to hear her own personal explanation.

Disturbing Information

I added this to my order at the last minute, and I am very glad I did. It is hard to believe that so many well-known mega-church pastors have said how much they admire her and her writings. She took comtemplative prayer to an extreme, and the events that happened to her could not have been from God.
