Peace in Prayer: Wisdom from Teresa of Avila

By

I love God, but my prayer doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. What’s happening? Sometimes prayer seems effortless. Other times, no matter who we are or what our vocation is in life, we are distracted by some other interest. Teresa of Avila teaches us to both live and pray in reality, and to find God’s peace and his presence in the midst of our daily lives.
