Overview

In this refreshing and inspiring book, Brother Michael McGrath invites us on a mystical Journey with ThZr_se of Lisieux and into the artist that dwells within each of us. Dispensing with the sugary and overly pious representations of ThZr_se, McGrath reveals the real saint and Doctor of the Church through selections from her own writings, written meditations, and 50 pieces of original artwork depicting scenes of her life_from the playful to the painful, human to the holy, seeker to the saint. The result is that we come to know ThZr_se as a multitalented artist of painting, writing, praying, and connecting. We come to see the depth of her devotion to God and power of her spiritual wisdom. And we follow her as a trustworthy guide on our pilgrim path toward God.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A more enchanting take on Th r se can be found in Michael O'Neill McGrath's Journey with Th r se of Lisieux: Celebrating the Artist in Us All, a quirky, charming mix of sketches that accompany McGrath's story of how his life has been changed by the saint. He recently traveled to France to visit all of her pilgrimage sites, and his artwork from that trip shows Th r se's human side. In one sketch (the author's favorite), he and the 19th-century nun are sitting across from one another in a caf . A cathedral is in the background, and a rose (Th r se's signature flower) adorns the table. In French fashion, she is drinking wine, while he, a quintessential American, chugs a beer. In such whimsical portraits the nun comes to life and we are reminded that she was an artist, poet and playwright in her own right, as well as a contemplative woman religious. ( Feb.)
