The Way of Perfection Catholic Audiobook CD Set
Listen to a sample chapter!
The Way of Perfection is a practical guide to prayer, setting forth St. Teresa of Avila’s counsels and directives for the attainment of spiritual perfection. Through the entire work there runs the author’s desire to teach a deep and lasting love of prayer beginning with a treatment of the three essentials of the prayer-filled life — fraternal love, detachment from created things, and true humility. St. Teresa’s counsels on these are not only the fruit of lofty mental speculation, but of mature practical experience. The next section develops these ideas and brings the reader directly to the subjects of prayer and contemplation.
The saint then gives various maxims for the practice of prayer and leads up to the topic which occupies the balance of the book — a detailed and inspiring commentary on the Lord’s Prayer. Of all St. Teresa’s writings, The Way of Perfection is the most easily understood. Although it is a work of sublime mystical beauty, its outstanding hallmark is its simplicity which instructs, exhorts, and inspires all those who are seeking a more perfect way of life.
by St. Teresa of Avila, translated by Rev. John Dalton
