The Autobiography of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux. Forward by Bishop Barron.
Thérèse of Lisieux, known as the "Little Flower," was a little-known, cloistered Carmelite nun who passed away at a young age. However, within a few years of her passing, she gained recognition all over the world.
Her brief autobiography is regarded as a spiritual classic, and she is currently a Doctor of the Church. What made this little flower so outstanding?
In the "Story of the Soul" learn more about the saint whose simple but profound insight that "My
vocation is love" has touched the hearts of millions in this brand-new
edition to the Word on Fire Classics series from Bishop Barron.
Thérèse chronicles her religious family, her personal conversion that deepened over time, and her years of adversity and sorrow in her autobiographical book Story of a Soul.
She demonstrates the "tiny route" to sainthood—childlike humility before God the Father and a readiness to accomplish modest things with tremendous love—as a true "doctor of grace."
