Tuesday Night Book Group | Lent 2022: St. Teresa of Avila’s Nine Grades of Prayer

April 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until April 26, 2022

“Prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God…Christ does not give himself entirely until he sees that we yield ourselves entirely to him.” – St. Teresa of Avila

There is much more to a life of prayer than most people realize! As we seek to powerfully enhance our prayer lives during Lent and beyond, we turn to a Doctor of the Church whose insights will lead us ever-deeper toward union with God: St. Teresa of Avila. With the help of a series of video lessons narrated by Matthew Leonard, we’ll explore both active (i.e., through our own efforts) and passive (i.e., through our receptivity to God’s grace) subcategories of vocal prayer, meditation, and contemplation. Join us via Zoom.

Participants can receive a free copy of the workbook St. Teresa of Avila’s NINE GRADES OF PRAYER — simply email us your best mailing address. Then sign up for the free series of 14 10-to-15-minute video lessons at ScienceOfSainthood.com.

Recommended (but optional) Supplemental Reading: St. Teresa of Avila’s THE INTERIOR CASTLE – STUDY EDITION translated and prepared by Kiernan Kavanaugh, OCD.
