Born Marie Françoise-Therese Martin, Saint Therese of Lisieux in her twenty-four short years, through her simple and practical approach to spiritual life, left one of the most lasting impressions upon the Catholic world. In the view of Pope Saint Pius X, she was the greatest saint of modern times, and along with Saint Francis of Assisi, remains to this day as one of the popular saints in the history of the church. Contained here is her autobiography, in the words of Francis Cardinal Bourne, “It is the old story of simplicity in God’s service, of the perfect accomplishment of small recurring duties, of trustful confidence in Him who made and has redeemed and sanctified us. Humility, self-effacement, obedience, hiddenness, unfaltering charity, with all the self-control and constant effort that they imply, are written on every page of the history of this little Saint. And, as we turn its pages, the lesson is borne in upon our souls that there is no surer nor safer way of pleasing Our Father Who is in Heaven than by remaining ever as little children in His sight.” This edition of “The Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisieux” is printed on a premium acid-free paper.
