The Story of a Soul: St. Therese of Lisieux
Translated and Edited by Robert J. Edmonson, CJ. On April 6, 2011, Pope Benedict XVI focused the general audience on a saint he says is one of the "best known and loved": the 19th century Carmelite, Saint Therese of Lisieux. He invited us to rediscover this great treasure of the Church through the reading of her autobiography, Story of a Soul. I accepted the Pope's invitation and reread the story of this 'little flower' as she is fondly known by those who pray to her. Saint Therese was known for her little way which meant that throughout her day, she offered everything she did, no matter how big or small, to Jesus. This little way has been such a spiritual aid for simple souls that Blessed (now Saint) John Paul II named her a Doctor of the Church. I promise that if you don't know St. Therese you will fall in love with her, and if you do know her, you will fall in love with her all over again. In her short twenty-four years on this earth, she learned the simple secret of life … to LOVE. That is a secret that needs to be spread throughout our world. Saint Therese, pray for us!
