A Carmelite nun who joined the convent at the young age of fifteen, Saint Thérèse of Lisieux lived a cloistered life of obscurity. Though she preferred hidden sacrifice during her short life, her words, her legacy, and her “little way” have made her one of the more popular saints of today.
Thérèse’s road was one of suffering, spiritual childhood, abandonment to the benevolence of the Lord, trials of faith, periods of painful spiritual barrenness, and a life devoted entirely to love and to the Church. She felt within herself the music of holiness, and she let it resound in her heart until it made her whole life an offering of love.
Enjoy your time with Thérèse of Lisieux, and be prepared to be surprised as you journey with one of the most beloved spiritual figures of our time.
