Lent through St. Teresa’s “Interior Castle”

2nd Dwelling places – The Interior Castle

“Ah, my Lord! Your help is necessary here; without it one can do nothing. In Your mercy do not consent to allow this soul to suffer deception and give up what was begun. Enlighten it that it may see how all its good is within this castle and that it may turn away from bad companions.’

“It’s a wonderful thing for a person to talk to those who speak about this interior castle, to draw near not only to those seen to be in these rooms where he is but to those known to have entered the ones closer to the centre. Conversation with these latter will be a great help to him, and he can converse so much with them that they will bring him to where they are.”
