    Of Avila Teresa (Author)
Excerpt: ...I wish now to go on with the story of my life. Our Lord grant that I have been clear enough in what I have hitherto said! I feel assured that he will understand me who has had experience herein, and that he will see I have partially succeeded: but as to him who has had no such experience, I should not be surprised if he regarded it all as folly.
