Teresa of Avila was called by God to reform and renew the Carmelite order, a daunting task. She was joined in this work by her great fellow Carmelite and spiritual director, St. John of the Cross. This film reveals the conversion that Teresa herself had to go thru to deepen her own union with Christ as she endeavored to bring about that same deeper spiritual reform of her Carmelite order. It shows the tremendous opposition that she and John both faced within (and without) their order to bring about this much needed spiritual renewal. She and John of the Cross were both great mystics who combined the essential dimensions of a profound spiritual life with the very practical aspects of being completely dedicated to the human tasks necessary for such a reform.

This film has touched me as no other, except maybe "Brother Sun, Sister Moon."
Concha Velasco is brilliant as Teresa, revealing to us a saint that was both very human and at the same time a great mystic.
Very good movie with good acting and meaningful depth of a story and very well thought out script.
Very well done, and a very beautiful and inspiring life! I highly recommended for any one interested in spirituality.Published 1 month ago by Al
