Description
 
A collection of five homilies, delivered for various occasions at Carmelite monasteries, on some of the major themes of the Little Flower’s spiritual message. Introduces the reader to St. Therese’s thoughts on a wide range of topics: the nature of faith, the meaning of holiness, the place of Sacred Scripture in a believer’s life, the centrality of the Eucharist, our duty to respect and pray for priests, the importance of evangelization, and others. Excellent for personal reading and reflection on retreats or days of recollection, or as the basis for discussion in third order or prayer groups. Great introduction to St. Therese for high school religious education classes or adult education programs. Can provide a springboard to a more direct and extensive reading of the Little Flower’s works themselves. As the author points out in his preface, “The wonderful thing about St. Therese’s style is that she was able to present very profound theological concepts in very simple language—the sign of a truly great teacher."

Love, in fact, is the vocation which includes all other; it's a universe of its own, comprising all time and space- it's eternal. Beside myself with joy, I cried out: "Jesus my Love! I've found my vocation, and my vocation is love." I had discovered where it is that i belong in the Church, the niche God has appointed for me. To be nothing else than love, deep down in the heart of Mother Church; that's to be everything at once- my dream wasn't a dream after all.-St. Therese of Lisieux
