Saint Teresa of Avila (1515-1582), a Carmelite Order nun, was struck with an illness so severe that her legs remained paralyzed for three years. But after this experience, her life's pursuit became a passion for God and prayer that is still impacting people today.

In A Life of Prayer, her desire for all men and women to know God intimately is evident: "In this state of prayer, the soul realizes that God is doing His work without any strain on the intellect. It is simply amazed that it can see the Lord act as such a good Gardener of the soul."

Under the shadow of the Spanish Inquisition, Teresa wrote beautiful works that speak to the heart of all Christians. As editor James Houston puts it, "She speaks to us in vivid metaphors that illuminate the way of the spirit, delicately and unaffectedly." Her works - and indeed her life - show that all of us can have A Life of Prayer.
