A Meditation from St. Teresa of Avila

Thanks for the link. St. Teresa is one of the main reasons that I first became interested in the Catholic Church. Have you read any of her work?

I'm just going to echo what a dear friend of mine said when she started reading, The Way of Perfection, "I feel like she's my spiritual director!"

No, I have never read any of her works. I've been trying to get some of the more classic works of saints like the Diary of St. Faustina, but I'm having trouble finding a library that carries them. I'm going to look into St. Teresa tonight and see if they have "Interior Castle" since I'll be going to a library tonight.

And, Niina, welcome and God bless!
