PRAYING WITH THERESE OF LISIEUX is more than just a book about Therese's spirituality. This book seeks to engage you in praying in the way that Therese did about issues and themes that were central to her experience. Each meditation can enlighten your understanding of her spirituality and lead you to reflect on your own experience.
Praying With Therese Of Lisieux is part of the Companions for the Journey Series of twenty-two favorite saints and spiritual guides, ready to accompany readers on their faith journey! Ten to fifteen themes that guided the life of an honored saint or spiritual guide are presented in each title of this series, showing how the subject of each book lived those themes, while making connections to our current time so that readers can apply the principles to their own lives.
Every title features selections of the saint or spiritual guide's writings, commentaries that provide historical context and root the saint or spiritual guide's wisdom in Scripture, and suggested prayer exercises in each chapter. The Word Among Us Press is especially pleased to present these favorites in the Companions for the Journey Series, which for fifteen years has been read by many thousands of Catholics.
After Thérèse of Lisieux died on September 30, 1897, her popularity rapidly extended well beyond her homeland of France. Thérèse has been the inspiration of untold numbers of ordinary people to whom her life proclaimed in a compelling way this gospel truth: absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of God. Thérèse knew that God led her with all of her inadequacies to holiness. She assures us that God can do the same for us.
