Book Summary:
Pope Benedict XVI Encourages Reading "Story of a Soul"

The Story of a Soul conveys St Therese of Liseux's "Little Way" of spiritual childhood - her "elevator" to Heaven, as she called it. This method was approved by Pope Pius XI as a way for all to grow in holiness through unfailing confidence and childlike delight in God's merciful love.

Again and again in this book, St. Therese shows us how her "Little Way" of love and trust comes straight from Sacred Scripture.

This book belongs in every Catholic home, for Pope St Pius X stated St. Therese of Liseux the "greatest Saint of modern times".

This is the original TAN edition now with updated typesetting, fresh new cover, new size and quality binding, and the same trusted content.
About the Author:
St. Therese of Lisieux

was a Roman Catholic French Discalced Carmelite nun widely venerated in modern times. She is popularly known as "The Little Flower of Jesus" or simply "The Little Flower". Therese felt an early call to religious life, and overcoming various obstacles, in 1888 at the early age of 15, she became a nun and joined two of her elder sisters in the cloistered Carmelite community of Lisieux, Normandy. After nine years as a Carmelite religious, having fulfilled various offices such as sacristan and assistant to the novice mistress, and having spent her last eighteen months in Carmel in a night of faith, she died at aged 24, following a slow and painful fight against tuberculosis.

5 Stars More beautiful version!!! :-)

What a beautifully written and charming book! Filled with heartwarming tenderness! I like this version much better than another one I have, b/c the language and grammatical style is so much more smooth, flowery and poetic. The other version is choppy, dull and plain sounding. This version reflects St. Therese childlike innocence and sweetness much more vividly.

This is a classic that I've heard about for years and decided to make it part of my Lenten journey this year. When St. Therese writes of herself as a young person, you can sense her innocence and appreciate her candor. I have not finished the book, but what I have read has made me really want to continue reading the story of her life. Though she is a saint, her humanity is clearly present and most anyone will be able to relate to her story.

There is a reason that this book has sold millions of copies, been translated into more than 50 languages and is still in print more than a hundred years after its first publication. It describes how a simple poorly educated young woman found her very simple way to God and was declared a Doctor of the Church based on this work. A way we can all emulate.
