St. Therese of Lisieux's "little way" or "way of holy childhood" confirms the most fundamental and hope-filled truth of the Gospel, namely that God is our Father and we are His children, no matter what He may send our way. Edith Stein, a Jewish convert to Catholicism and Carmelite nun, believed and trusted completely that God's kingdom is built through the effective power of prayer and the Eucharist. Her martyrdom in Auschwitz did not disturb her hope for ultimate salvation.
