Abstract:

"The words of Saint Teresa of Avila speak to the heart so directly that even four hundred years after her death she seems like our contemporary. Mother Tessa Bielecki has brought together here short selections from Tessa's collected works - including The Way of Perfection, The Interior Castle, her autobiography, poetry, meditations, and letters - to create a living portrait of Teresa and her exuberant spirituality. Teresa's striving for divine union was inseparable from her passionate involvement in the hardships and joys of the everyday - which makes her an eminently worthy model for modern people who seek to integrate spirituality and the rest of life."--Jacket.
