Synopses & Reviews
According to author Caryll Houselander, the secrets of Jesus' "little way" are disclosed only by Jesus as an infant. She details them in this moving series of spiritual reflections. This beautiful book will give you new love for the Child Jesus who, for your sake, was bound by helplessness in the manger as firmly as He would later be bound by nails on the Cross.
Caryll Houselander reveals that in order to become like a little child as Jesus admonishes, believers must come to see the Holy Infant as He really is -- our God of suffering and majesty, who even in His cradle shows the straight path to holiness: the little way of the infant Jesus. This little way is the same little way that St. Therese traveled, and that all Christians must travel. Its secrets, says Houselander, are disclosed by Jesus as an infant. Houselander's understanding of the implications of the Incarnation become for her a springboard to wisdom about the human condition.
