This lecture series had some very good information but I was bothered by a couple of things. First his Spanish translations were suspect in my opinion. For example when he said, ‘llover mucho’ was translated as an absolute downpour when it actually translates ‘to rain a lot’ (much). A small point I realize, but enough to raise an eyebrow. In the 12th lecture he states that we now have in our time more advanced techniques such as centering prayer to achieve high levels of prayer. It seems the height of arrogance to suggest that we can attain what Teresa and John achieved in our prayer life through techniques they were not privy to in the 16th century. The prayer of union in not achieved through technique, but through personal virtue and God’s grace. We cannot achieve it ourselves, we can only receive it if It is God’s will for us.
