Editorial Reviews

Or is art a distraction from prayer? Vilma Seelaus OCD would say no. Her book Distractions in Prayer: Blessing or Curse? calls on Teresa of Avila to corroborate, from her careful study of the seven dwelling places in Teresa's Interior Castle. If recognized and handled rightly, distractions help toward self-knowledge and humility, and that will be encouraging news to many devout people. -- Review for Religious
