Review from the Publisher

The life of St. Therese is a lesson to all men of spiritual greatness to be achieved by perfect love of God and total consecration of all our actions, even the smallest, to His greatest honor and glory. This famous author offers many spiritual gems of wisdom and inspires renewed affection for the incomparable child saint who "ran as a giant in the way" to sanctity. Cum Permissu Superiorum. 157pp. PB.


John Beevers did much to make Therese known and loved in English-speaking countries. While Fr. John Clarke's translation of Story of a Soul has replaced the Beevers version as the authoritative translation, this book remains an excellent commentary on Therese's life and saint-making. You will enjoy.
