Publisher's Synopsis

Examples of her most sublime and profound works, each expressing the full flowering of her deep experience in guiding souls toward spiritual fulfillment.


"The account of her spiritual life contained in the Life written by herself (completed in 1565, an earlier version being lost), in the Relations, and in the Interior Castle, forms one of the most remarkable spiritual biographies with which only the Confessions of St. Augustine can bear comparison.

To this period belong also such extraordinary manifestations as the piercing or transverberation of her heart, the spiritual espousals, and the mystical marriage. A vision of the place destined for her in hell in case she should have been unfaithful to grace, determined her to seek a more perfect life."      ~The Catholic Encyclopedia

"To have courage for whatever comes in life — everything lies in that."
