Dan Burke’s devotional book, 30 Days with Teresa of Avila, is a most timely resource as the Church celebrates the 500th anniversary of her birth. The selections chosen from the Saint’s extensive correspondence provide spiritual and practical insight in order to love God at a deeper level, which results in a burning desire to truly love others. As Pope Francis has noted, what St. Teresa has to say through her writings has “perennial relevance” for us today, and 30 Days will help unpack previously unfamiliar writings that provide an abundant feast to nourish hungry souls. —Michael D. Wick, Executive Director for the Institute on Religious Life
The Church recognizes St. Teresa as a doctor of the Church, which means that all Christians should learn from her. Thanks to Dan Burke for making such learning simple, practical, and pleasurable.
