Thrse 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 Thrses little way is really the gospel messagea message that can best be understood in the context of her life. Schmidt does a masterful job of weaving together biographical details with Thrses profound insights on Gods love and mercy. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants an introduction to Thrses spirituality as well as for those who desire a deeper appreciation of her little waya way that continues to speak to Catholics today. Includes photographs of Thrse as a young girl and throughout her life.
From her early years, Therse of Lisieux desired to be a saint, so the primary focus of her life was to walk the path of love, what she called the science of love. But she often asked herself if her love was pure and authentic.
Th r se Martin entered the Carmelite monastery of Lisieux, France, at the age of fifteen and died just nine years later, but her life and spirituality have inspired untold numbers of ordinary people. Her "Little Way" proclaims this gospel truth: absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of God. Th r se knew that God led her, with all of her inadequacies, to holiness. She assures us that God can do the same for us.
Meditations in the book explore her words and actions to pursue her "Little Way."
God wants us to share our lives and our hearts with him. In this updated and expanded edition of a spiritual classic, Christian Brother Joseph Schmidt gently leads us to recognize that honest reflection before God on the ordinary experiences of our lives is the very means of our spiritual growth. As we speak to God about our personal story, we can explore the significance of our unrest, our joys, our fears, and our hopes. Then the Holy Spirit will lead us to self-knowledge and the freedom to accept and appreciate ourselves and our lives as they are. This book goes beyond any specific way of praying to the very heart of prayer: intimacy with God.
