Seek Him – Find Him – Follow Him
For those unfamiliar with Saint Teresa of Avila, also known as Saint Teresa of Jesus, she was a reformer of the Carmelite Order in the 1500s. The Interior Castle, which is also known as The Mansions, is a spiritual classic on authentic meditation. It details the spiritual life and the life of prayer as a journey from the outer mansions to the inner, most intimate mansion, with each mansion representing a different stage in the journey from the beginning, or outer mansions, until one has experienced union with God. She wrote this book after she had experienced both the spiritual betrothal and the spiritual marriage. St. Teresa of Avila also holds the title of Doctor of the Church.
