The course will include the history and teaching of St. Teresa of Avila. Born on March 28, 1515 in the province of Avila, Spain. This course walks you through overcoming your sin and helping you to enter into prayer as taught by St. Teresa of Avila. As a Doctor of the Church, St. Teresa of Avila went from a life of sin in which she felt she could not and should not be loved by God to a state in which she is able to help others achieve higher states of prayer which is why she is referred to as the Doctor of Prayer within the Church.
The class will be based on the Collected Works of St. Teresa. We will focus on the three major works of St. Teresa: The Book of her life, The Way of Perfection and The Interior Castle.
