“Do not be frightened, daughters, by the many things you need to consider in order to begin this Divine Journey which is the Royal Road to Heaven. A great Treasure is gained by traveling this road.” St. Teresa of Avila
Saint Teresa tells us that this path of interior prayer is the Royal Road to Heaven offering a treasure for the soul who pursues it. It is not a path reserved for a few elite, it is open to all the baptized. All are invited to share in mystical life for which interior prayer is the vital nourishment.
The prayingwithteresaofavila.com website and its companion YouTube channel was developed to give you some easy-to-use tools to learn to practice Teresian prayer yourself and then to develop your own school of prayer in your parish or in your community. Remember to keep a treasure it is important to give it away. Just pick up these simple tools and use them to begin this journey inward to the heart and to union with God through the regular practice of Saint Teresa of Avila’s way of prayer.
“Yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me;
insofar as I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God
who has loved me and given himself up for me.” Galatians 20:2
