Overview

This final work from Clarence Enzler offers a glimpse into the life of a Christian disciple facing his own mortality and reflecting on holiness, family, and the saints—in particular St. Thérèse of Lisieux, to whom Enzler had a great devotion.

First published in 1978, Let Us Be What We Are explores the Christian life as seen through a personal, intimate, one-on-one conversation with Jesus as he faces serious illness and contemplates his life as a father, deacon, writer, and disciple. He draws readers into his devotion to the "Little Way" of St. Thérèse, explaining how this practice helped him offer his own small sufferings to God, especially when he faced a major surgery. Enzler tells how he learned to unite his suffering with that of Christ in his own personal Holy Week.

"Clarence Enzler's work has touched many lives and brought many people closer to the Lord. It still has the power to do that." —Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, Archbishop Emeritus of Washington
