The Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux
Publisher: TAN Books
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.
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.
Beautiful. It inspires in one the desire to grow in holiness, to grow closer to God. Truly a must-read.
