Interior Castle of St. Teresa of Jesus: Mansions 5 - 7 (MP3s) - Fr. Raymond Bueno, OCD
We welcome Father Raymond Bueno back as he finishes his two part series on The Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila. Originally preached to Lay Carmelites, Father Bueno very accessibly explains Mansions 5-7 with a recap of Mansion 4. As we strive grow in our spiritual life, St. Teresa reveals how God works in prayer as the soul progresses from discursive meditation to contemplative, through the Prayer of Quiet and the Prayer of Union. In all stages of our life, we continue to practice detachment so that the light of God which so strongly radiates itself from the center of Mansion 7 will permeate and transform our lives no matter where God desires us to be on the spiritual journey.
