Teresa of Avila,   Translated Kieran Kavanaugh, OCD & Otilio Rodriguez, OCD         Study prepared by Kieran Kavanaugh, OCD


In The Way of Perfection, St. Teresa gives practical counsels and advice on prayer, destined originally for the nuns who embraced the reformed Carmelite life she established. As a handbook for spiritual formation, it presented them with the basic Christian spirituality undergirding their Constitutions and Rule. The principles and teachings in Teresa’s book clearly lend themselves to broader applications, and can work well in all walks of life. This study edition—with its introduction, commentary, notes, discussion questions, and glossary—provides what is needed to assist contemporary readers in making these applications and delving more deeply into the text’s spiritual riches. 544 pages. Paperback.
