GIFT - Individual Course: St. Teresa of Avila's Nine Grades of Prayer (Digital Workbook Only)

Course Description

This series is a deep and dynamic exploration of the classic grades of prayer from the Doctor of Prayer, St. Teresa of Avila. Beginning with the basics, it illuminates vocal, meditative, and contemplative prayer as the path to union with God.

Like a thrilling drama, it intensifies as it progresses, until it finally culminates in the ecstatic union with God for which every one of us is made.

St. Teresa of Avila's Nine Grades of Prayer is unlike any series you've ever experienced and will leave you breathless at what God has in store for you. This study is a "must" for any Catholic who wants to understand what Christ himself calls the "one thing necessary" in Luke 10.

And very few people can match Matthew Leonard's ability to clearly explain to regular Catholics the beauty and depth of St. Teresa's incredible teaching. 

"Matthew is possibly the finest speaker on the spiritual life out there these days. His clarity and depth are a blessing." Fr. Rich Simon - Relevant Radio

WOW, only Matthew Leonard can explain so simply what is infused prayer." Maria

"Mind-blowing and transforming catechesis on Catholic spirituality." Fr. Augustine
