Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The success of this book is one of the most amazing stories in publishing history, for St. Th r se died at only age 24, after a nine-year hidden life as a cloistered Carmelite nun. Translated into many languages, The Story of a Soul quickly had a phenomenal reception, and millions of copies were distributed worldwide.

Written under obedience, the book conveys her secrets of great holiness achieved in ordinary life, teaching the Little Way of Spiritual Childhood her elevator to Heaven, as she called it. She continually shows us in this book how her Little Way of love and confidence comes straight from Sacred Scripture. This method has been approved and promulgated by Pope Pius XI as a way of holiness for all.

No Catholic should be ignorant of the mighty little Therese or her Little Way. The Story of a Soul is a book that belongs in every Catholic home.

The Story of a Soul conveys St Therese of Liseux's "Little Way" of spiritual childhood - her "elevator" to Heaven, as she called it. This method was approved by Pope Pius XI as a way for all to grow in holiness through unfailing confidence and childlike delight in God's merciful love. Encouraged by many Popes, including Benedict XVI and St. Pius X, this book is essential for any Catholic who desires to easily grow closer to God through the "Little Way" of the :greatest saint of modern times."

About the Author

St. Therese of Lisieux, also known as "Therese of the Child Jesus" and "The Little Flower", was the last of nine children born to Louis and Zelie Martin, at France in 1873. She was often anxious and depressed in childhood, as she suffered the early death of her mother. After she converted interiorly and began to read Thomas a Kempis' The Imitation of Christ, she joined 2 of her sisters in a discalced Carmelite convent as a nun at just 15 years old. After her oldest sister was elected prioress, Therese became a permanent novice to allay suspicions that her family was dominating the small community. She lived humbly, concealing her intense prayer life and countless sacrifices

Therese is the author of her own popular autobiography entitled The Story of a Soul, which she began writing in 1895, and she instituted a simple path to holiness now widely known as the "Little Way". She died of tuberculosis on September 30, 1897, at the age of 24 and was canonized only 28 years later, in 1925, by Pope Pius XI. She was later installed as the thirty-third Doctor of the Church by Pope John Paul II in 1997.
