The Way of Perfection by St. Teresa of Avila

Although St. Teresa of Avila lived and wrote almost four centuries ago, her inspiring classic on the practice of prayer is fresh. The Way of Perfection is a practical guide to prayer setting forth the Saint’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.
