Saint Theresa of Avila's "The Interior Castle"
July 14 - 15
Come spend some time in reflection on Saint Theresa of Avila's great work, "The Interior Castle." Written in 1577, Saint Theresa describes how the soul is like a diamond in the shape of a castle that contains seven mansions.
The mansions are symbolic of the seven stages of a journey of faith which culminates in 'union with God.' Even though these words were written nearly 450 years ago, Saint Theresa's wisdom is just as applicable and practical today.
Presenter: Father John Bohn, pastor of Saint Richard's parish, Jackson, is a long time student of Saint Theresa and Saint John of the Cross.
