Tales of Glory - We enter into the mystical mansions of the interior castle. Souls entering the Fourth Mansions begin to experience mystical prayer experiences. A new prayer experience happens here that conflicts with our third mansions style of prayer meditation - infused contemplation.
The Fourth Mansions is both joyful and full of spiritual warfare as the soul begins to experience absorption and the will is drawn into the presence of God. Saint Teresa provides us with insightful spiritual direction through the gateway to the deeper mansions.
