St Teresa of Avila

St Teresa of Avila or St Teresa of Jesus
NFS

Own composition except for Teresa which is taken from an old prayer card.

Teresa, the writer, is set against a backdrop of the Avila walls and the hot Spanish summers. Some of her writings are depicted here:
LIFE
Rain – One of the Four Waters of Prayer.
THE WAY OF PERFECTION
Crown – “We must checkmate the Divine King”.
Clouds – Teresa’s commentary on ‘Our Father’ or Paternoster.
THE INTERIOR CASTLE
Butterfly – Like a silkworm metamorphosing from cocoon to butterfly, we transform to a new life in Christ.
Bell Tower – The 7th mansion is the royal chamber, where one enters into communion with the Holy Trinity.
