Excerpt from The Life of Saint Teresa: Taken From the French of "a Caremelite Nun"
Now, in the long list of Christian seers, the name of Teresa of Jesus is perhaps the best known of all. Other figures stand out brilliantly in this or that light -saint Francis of Assisi, as the all-but-perfect imitator of the Poor Man of Galilee; Saint Benedict, as the father of a holy family beyond all reckoning; Saint Ignatius, as a veritable captain of an army of Christ but, so far as the interior life is concerned - the know ledge and sovereignty of that inner realm where, as in a magic mirror, the historical and external life of Christ is reproduced and re-enacted, where His Birth, His Passion, His Resurrection, Ascension, and Session are seen to be not merely exterior happenings, but the anti types of actual individual experience - in all this strange region known as the scene of the mystical life, Saint Teresa, with two or three of her contemporaries Saint [ohn of the Cross, Saint Peter of Alcantara reigns supreme.
