Episode 13 – The Interior Castle: Locutions, Raptures, and Ecstasies

While the devil is able to counterfeit some things, he cannot reproduce the sense of peace and delight that come with authentic locutions. St. Teresa says that, in spiritual betrothal, God allows us to have raptures in order to draw us out of our faculties, and she parses out different types of raptures. The different things the Lord does to the raptured soul are remembered forever and are often beyond full articulation because they deal with the grandeur of God!

Episode 13 focuses on The 6th Mansions, Chapter 3.
