TERESA OF AVILA: MINI-SERIES-DVD
DVD is formatted for Region 1
powerful epic mini-series shot on location in Spain that tells the story
of one of the most amazing women in history, St. Teresa of Avila. With
meticulous attention to detail and historical accuracy, outstanding
production values, and an incredible performance by actress Concha Velasco
as Teresa, this acclaimed major film production is the definitive film
on the life of this great saint.
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 through to deepen her own
union with Christ as she endeavored to bring about that same deeper
spiritual reform of the 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.
