St Teresa Statue
St Teresa of Avila - perfect spiritual love.
St Teresa joined the Carmelite order when she was a young girl. After some time she became gravely ill which resulted in her legs becoming paralysed. It was during these times of her own suffering that she then had visions of Christ's suffering. Due to this insight St Teresa became an author of great sensitivity and wisdom.
Amongst her prolific writings on understanding the power of prayer, she wrote "The way to perfection" which is a practical guide to prayer, setting forth the Saint's counsels and directives for the attainment of spiritual perfection.
