Tales of Glory dives into Santa Teresa of Avila's Fifth Mansions Chapter 02.
In chapter 02, Saint Teresa explains to us her classical metaphor of ascetical and mystical prayer life - the silk worm and the butterfly. Here she explains how the silk worm is like a soul in the First through Third mansions, developing from a beginning to advance prayer interior life. As the soul prays, like the worm feeding on the mulberries, the soul begins to go deeper (cocoon) in Jesus Christ. Where it makes its home before emerging later as a butterfly (a soul in the mystical states of prayer life).
Pull up your cozy lounge chair next to the fireplace. Pour your self your favorite beverage and sit back as the Doctor of Prayer of the Catholic Church edifies us in these amazing experiences with God in our interior life.
