Therese of Lisieux has been called the greatest saint of modern times, but some view her spirituality as sentimental and syrupy. Joseph F. Schmidt, FSC, dispels that notion by contending that Thereses little way is really the gospel messag--a message that can best be understood in the context of her life.
Schmidt does a masterful job of weaving together biographical details with Thereses profound insights on Gods love and mercy. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants an introduction to Thereses spirituality as well as for those who desire a deeper appreciation of her little way--a way that continues to speak to Catholics today.
Includes photographs of Thérèse as a young girl and throughout her life.
Joseph F. Schmidt, FSC, is a lecturer, spiritual director, and counselor at Sangre de Cristo Center, an international sabbatical program located near Santa Fe, New Mexico. He is the author of "Praying with Therese of Lisieux" and "Praying Our Experiences."
