 Our Description


The Way of Perfection by Saint Teresa of Jesus

translated by a Discalced Carmelite
  • 192 pages
  • Size - 5 1/2" x 8"
  • Hardbound (split bound in dark brown-light brown leather)

This great classic, by one of the Church’s most famous mystics and spiritual guides, is essential reading for anyone wishing to make real progress in the spiritual life. By turns pithy and poetical, humorous and stern, full of Spanish fire and the practical common sense that made St. Teresa one of the Church’s most effective leaders and reformers, it is a book that no Catholic who takes their faith seriously should be without.

Patron Of: Headaches, Lace Makers, Loss of Parents, Sick, Spanish Catholics, Writers

    Spanish noble, the daughter of Don Alonso Sanchez de Cepeda and Doña Beatriz. She grew up reading the lives of the saints, and playing at "hermit" in the garden. Crippled by disease in her youth, which led to her being well educated at home, she was cured after prayer to Saint Joseph. Her mother died when Teresa was 12, and she prayed to Our Lady to be her replacement. Her father opposed her entry to religious life, so she left home without telling anyone, and entered a Carmelite house at 17. Seeing her conviction to her call, her father and family consented.

    Soon after taking her vows, Teresa became gravely ill, and her condition was aggravated by the inadequate medical help she received; she never fully recovered her health. She began receiving visions, and was examined by Dominicans and Jesuits, including Saint Francis Borgia, who pronounced the visions to be holy and true.

    She considered her original house too lax in its rule, so she founded a reformed convent of Saint John of Avila. Founded several houses, often against fierce opposition from local authorities. Mystical writer. Proclaimed a Doctor of the Church on 27 September 1970 by Pope Paul VI.
