Saint Teresa of Avila


St. Teresa of Avila (c. 1515-1582)

“The soul remains all the time in that centre with its God. We might say that union is as if the ends of two wax candles were joined so that the light they give is one: the wicks and the wax and the light are all one.”

  • From Interior Castle (Seventh Mansions, chapter II) by St. Teresa of Avila, translated by E. Allison Peers (Dover Publications, 2007).
