Episode 15 – The Interior Castle: Intellectual and Imaginative Visions

St. Teresa explains how intellectual visions happen when a soul feels our Lord Jesus Christ beside it indubitably without seeing Him with either the eyes of the body or the eyes of the soul. Fr. Reid also goes into Teresa’s explanation of imaginary visions, which seem more beneficial, but which the devil meddles with more.

Episode 15 focuses on The 6th Mansions, Chapters 8 & 9.
