Written by a prominent sixteenth-century Spanish mystic and Carmelite nun, it forms a practical guide to prayer that embraces readers with its warmth and accessibility.St. Teresa of Avila's detailed directions on the achievement of spiritual perfection designate three essentials - fraternal love, detachment from material things, and true humility.
