St. Teresa of Avila – Autobiography [Freebie of the Week]

St. Teresa of Avila - AutobiographySt. Teresa of Avila is one of the most significant women in the history of the Church.

Teresa (March 28, 1515 – October 4, 1582) was “a prominent Spanish mystic, Roman Catholic saint, Carmelite nun, and writer of the Counter Reformation, and theologian of contemplative life through mental prayer. She was a reformer of the Carmelite Order and is considered to be, along with John of the Cross, a founder of the Discalced Carmelites. In 1622, forty years after her death, she was canonized by Pope Gregory XV, and in 1970 named a Doctor of the Church by Pope Paul VI. Her books, which include her autobiography, The Life of Teresa of Jesus, and her seminal work, El Castillo Interior (The Interior Castle), are an integral part of the Spanish Renaissance literature as well as Christian mysticism and Christian meditation practices as she entails in her other important work Camino de Perfección (The Way of Perfection).” (via Wikipedia)

On the Feast of St. Teresa today, we are pleased to offer her autobiography as our Freebie of the week…
