Saint Thérèse of Lisieux (1873-97, feast day, October 1) is the latest--and among youngest--of the thirty-three "Doctors of the Church." This devotional book is made up of her sayings from her many writings (Story of a Soul, her poetry, and her letters), approximately one to two sentences for each day of the year. Each month is introduced by a quote from Scripture (NRSV). The English text was translated by the late Paulist priest, Francis Broome, whose brief foreword is also included, as are end-notes and a table of contents.
This is the perfect pocket-/purse-sized gift-book for those who have a devotion to St.Thérèse or to those who have yet to be introduced to her infectious "Little Way."
