The Way of Perfection was first written around 1566 for young sisters belonging to the convent Teresa of Avila had recently founded in her native city.
This book will give you some insight into Teresa’s teaching as set forth in the Way of Perfection. It comes as an invitation to all people, whatever their age, whatever their stage of development. Teresa insists that anyone can pray if they want to pray. Anyone can love God in their life if they want to love him. It may be a gradual process, but a life of friendship with God awaits you, through a growing friendship with the Lord in prayer, and a growing friendship with those among whom you live your daily life.
