Three Gifts of Therese of Lisieux: A Saint for Our Times Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Thérèse has been such a presence in my adult life—it is as if I have known her personally; she is as real and alive to me as my lifelong friends... I’ve identified three gifts that Thérèse has given me, which I would like to offer in this book to everyone seeking to find more meaning in their faith and their journey to find God.” --Patrick Ahern

Transformation in our lives happens when we live with the confidence that "God is nothing but mercy and love.” In this inspiring book, beloved author Patrick Ahern looks at the teachings of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the Little Flower, through the lens of his own personal experiences in which this  "saint for our times" played such an important role for more than seventy years.  With honesty and humility, he delves into the transformational love that infused her faith, led her to be named one of only four female Doctors of the Catholic Church, and gave Ahern’s own journey direction and meaning. 

Ahern focuses on what he calls the three gifts of Thérèse:  her universal appeal, her conviction, and her little way. Echoing Therese’s recognition that bureaucracy, penances, rules and commandments miss the message of love that she knew to be true, he says, "She convinced me that someone as ordinary as I could aspire to the love of God, which filled her heart to overflowing." He hopes the same for his readers.

About the Author

PATRICK AHERN was born in New York City, studied for the priesthood at St. Joseph's Seminary in Yonkers and was ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of New York in 1945. He served as secretary to Cardinal Francis Spellman and was named Auxiliary Bishop in 1970, serving as Episcopal Vicar of the Bronx and Staten Island and later Vicar for Development for the Archdiocese of New York.  Because of his leadership, the Seton Foundation for Learning in Staten Island was founded.  He was influential in Pope John Paul II’s declaration of the Doctorate of St. Thérèse in 1997.  His first book on St. Thérèse, Maurice and Thérèse:  The Story of a Love, was published in 1998. Bishop Ahern died on March 19, 2011, soon after his 92nd Birthday.
