Are you hearing a call from God to serve in jail and/or prison ministry? Do you want to learn what the Church teaches about the dignity of the incarcerated?

This contemplative musical prayer is based on St. Teresa of Avila's writings on the Interior Castle. St. Teresa of Avila wrote that our soul is like a castle created out of a precious jewel with many interesting rooms. We can live our whole lives and never discover what it's like inside. This prayer experience is an invitation to journey into this castle. It seeks to help us find a quiet place in the midst of our busy life, where God can make a home in us. Music and script by Tony Alonso and Liam Lawton and performed by St. John Vianney lectors, singers and musicians.
