Chapter 6 – Book of Foundations by St. Teresa of Avila – Discerning Hearts Podcast

The Book of the Foundations


St. Teresa of Avila

Chapter 6 – St. Teresa shows the harm that may happen to spiritual persons by their not understanding when they should resist the spirit (ie. the difference between rapture and absorption).  She also treats of the desires a soul may have to communicate (receive Holy Communion), and of the deceit there may be in doing so.  Other important matters are mentioned for the government of the houses.
