Translated from the original by Ana Giménez.
Our spiritual journey is not an ideology, It´s a relationship with people
and with the three Persons of the Trinity. We nevertheless call on
social sciences for a XXI century interpretation of Saint Teresa´s
In many ways she was ahead of her time and her insights have been
confirmed by modern science; in other cases the strides, as we may
see,must be listened to and be embedded on our spiritual life.
Yesterday, as a matter of fact, we were offered by Benedicto the
possibility of starting a workshop -in groups or by ourselves-addressed
to those who are willing to increase their self-steem and need
encouragement to interpret Teresa´s teachings from nowadays point
As María and Ángel, aged 25, would say (have a look to what they
shared on the 13th of August) we are learning a way of living , not a
theoretical one. That requires a slow rhythm to add to our lives
what we really need.
Those who want to know this itinerary from my own interpretation,
can read it in my book “Acercar el cielo” (“To bring heaven closer”) ,
published by Sal Terrae in 2004.
