Episode 17 – The Interior Castle: The Very Center of The Soul

St. Teresa discusses our Lord’s presence in the very center of our souls, mortal sin, Trinitarian theology, and the distinction between spiritual betrothal and spiritual marriage. At this stage, Teresa says the soul “is far more active than before in all that concerns God’s service” and is even more attentive to avoid offending God in any way.

Episode 17 focuses on The 7th Mansions, Chapters 1 & 2.
