The words of Saint Teresa of Ávila speak to the heart so directly that even four hundred years after her death she seems like our contemporary. Few people have ever written of the spiritual path with such immediacy, down-to-earth wisdom, and humor. Mother Tessa Bielecki has brought together here short selections from Teresa'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.

I love this book and highly recommend it. It is an indispensible guide to anyone who wishes to begin or deepen their prayer life. Teresa has a wonderful grasp of what it means to be fully human, yet encourages and teaches us that intimacy with God is possible for all, if we have " determined determination". With her life experience, joys, sufferings, and humor that she freely relates with honesty about herself, one cannot help but love this remarkable woman. This book is not a novel or study book to be read cover to cover. One can leaf through and meditate on her wise words wherever one is in life. I have purchased and given many, many copies to friends and they love it, too.

Tessa Bielecki, the author, makes Teresa of Avila understandable, and in a most delightful presentation.
Teresa herself was so busy that she apparently was unable to organize well the
vast material she wrote, so Tessa has done the job for her, and "organized" her thoughts and experiences !
