Shirt of Flame - A Year with Saint Therese of Lisieux
By Heather King. How could a woman of 21st century Los Angeles find common ground with a 19th century cloistered French nun? That is the question Heather King asked herself as she embarked on a year long journey with St. Therese of Lisieux. Yet, common ground she did find. Ms. King suffered the pain of deterioration and loss as did St. Therese. She also carried the cross of physical and emotional suffering in a family affected by alcoholism. As the two women journey together throughout the year, their bond is deepened through roads of illness and healing, learning to serve, daring to ask, and praying without ceasing. Saint Therese is one of my favorite spiritual directors, but I received an additional spiritual director in Heather King. She gave thoughtful insights into our relationships with God and with our neighbor. Reading this book is a wonderful journey shared with two friends - St. Therese and Heather King. Softcover, 144 pages.
