Interior Castle: Which Mansion Am I In?

St. Theresa of Avila is without a doubt my favorite saint. I came to know of her through a silent retreat held at Bon Secours Spiritual Center in Marriottsville, MD and presented by Michael Fonseca.

I was entranced by her ability to write about the journey to God in a way that made it visible. It also made me wonder which Mansion would I be able to attain as many days it seemed that I was only gazing at the Castle from afar.

Here is a quick inspirational prayer video from her writings…I hope you enjoy it!
