"I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so often in human history." -Cardinal Francis George

Google Goof

Search term: Interior Castle.
Search Engine: Google Images.
Result: Really only two good images. One from the cover of the book---

Ok, that is a cool image. I like the odd boats and the spiral shape. The only other pic that caught my eye was this one---

"Wow!" I think to myself, "cool interpretation of St. Teresa of Avila's Interior Castle! I like how the glory of God is radiating out from the center castle to the other six, sort of drawing the seeker in, and... oh wait, it says Interior castle at Excalibur, Las Vegas."

My take-away from this embarrassing experience is that we need better imagery of St. Teresa of Avila's Interior Castle if  these are the only two I could find.

  1. Just google Avila in Spain or/and Barco de Avila. Avila is famous for its medieval city wall and, perhaps, these or Barco were on the of the saints mind, while they wrote about their inner castle.
