Tales of Glory - Interior Castle First Mansions Chapter 02

After some hiatus and a little quarantine time in between, Tales of Glory - Interior Castle First Mansions Chapter 02!
Let's dive into this classic manuscript on prayer and see what the Saint has to say on developing your interior life. We are in First mansions, where we just entered the castle and the soul is beginning to learn to pray. Or as the Saint says, the soul opens into itself through prayer.
In chapter 02, Saint Teresa wants to warn us about the dangers of mortal sin, before we move into deeper mansions. We must address our sinful nature, before advancing through the castle. Otherwise, the venomous vipers and reptiles, our own sinful natures we allowed in with us will draw us back out!

  1. I found this insightful. We must allow the flesh to be crucified so we can live in accordance with His Spirit. Lately when I'm tempted into old habits, I slow down and say, "God, I love you more than this 'thing', I'm going to serve you now and not my flesh". I'm looking forward to going deeper with Christ and experiencing His love and power in amazing ways. Thank you for this great word Mike.
