St Teresa of Avila The Interior Castle Spiritual Jubilation

Spiritual Jubilation Thus in this mansion raptures occur very frequently, nor can they be resisted even in public. Persecutions and slanders ensue ... she feels great confidence within her soul, especially when alone with God, yet on the other hand, she is greatly troubled by misgivings lest she is deceived by the devil and so should offend Him Whom she deeply loves. She cares little for blame, except when her confessor finds fault with her as if she could help what happens. .... Amongst these favours, at once painful and pleasant, Our Lord sometimes causes in the soul a certain jubilation and a strange and mysterious kind of prayer.
