Thanks for posting this. I look forward to the series.

One of my favorite quotes is from St Teresa-
"Those deceive themselves who believe that union with God consists in ecstasies or raptures, and in enjoyment of Him. For it consists in nothing except the surrender and subjection of our will."

I carefully recorded all of these eight TV shows about Teresa of Avila which are in Spanish with English subtitles. And I have begun to play the first show, listening to the TV because that is how I "watch" most TV.  I think many people do this too.

But, because I do not speak or understand Spanish ... I have still not watched and read even the first 15 minutes of the first show although I have tried 4 times. I turn the show on but then begin writing on the computer as I listen .... ooops.

From what I have seen, it looks like a good series, actually I should say it sounds like a good series!:)
