Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux (the Little Flower) [The Authorized English Translation of Therese's Original Unaltered Manuscripts]
Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of St.
Translated from the critical edition by John Clarke, OCD, 3rd ed. (1997). Includes general and biblical index, with 8 pages of photos.Two and a half years before her death in 1897 at the age of 24, as Thérèse Martin began writing down her childhood memories at the request of her blood sisters in the Lisieux Carmel, few could have guessed the eventual outcome. Yet this Story of my soul, first published in 1898 in a highly edited version, quickly became a modern spiritual classic, read by millions and translated into dozens of languages around the world. Decades later, in response to growing requests from scholars and devotees of the Saint, a facsimile edition of the manuscripts appeared, along with more popular French editions of what the Saint had actually written. Here, expressed with all of Thérèse's original spontaneity and fervor, we rediscover the great themes of her spirituality: confidence and love, the little way, abandonment to God's merciful love, and her mission in the church and world today. Father John Clarke's acclaimed translation, first published in 1975 and now accepted as the standard throughout the English-speaking world, is a faithful and unaffected rendering of Thérèse's own words, from the original manuscripts. This new edition, prepared for the centen...

Therese: The Little Flower of Lisieux (Life of
Continuing with The Life of a Saint series for young people, Therese: The Little Flower of Lisieux tells the story of Saint Therese of Lisieux, France, the young Carmelite nun known as the Little Flower and declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope John Paul II. Raised in a loving and devout family, Therese heard the calling to religious life at an early age. She was sensitive by nature, and her tremendous confidence in the love of God was the secret to her joy and perseverance. With sanctity and wisdom beyond her years, she wrote the spiritual classic Story of a Soul before dying of tuberculosis in 1897. Illustrated on every page with bright, four-color pictures, this life of Therese can be read independently by young readers, or read aloud to small children. Because of her childlike trust and simplicity, Therese is an ideal role model for young people.

Pope Benedict XVI Encourages Reading "Story of a Soul" 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. Again and again in this book, St. Therese shows us how her "Little Way" of love and trust comes straight from Sacred Scripture. This book belongs in every Catholic home, for Pope St Pius X stated St. Therese of Liseux the "greatest Saint of modern times". This is the original TAN edition now with updated typesetting, fresh new cover, new size and quality binding, and the same trusted content.

The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux, Vol. I: 1877-1890 (Critical edition of the complete works of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux) (English and French Edition)
The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux, Vol.
Translated from the critical edition by John Clarke, OCD. Includes 4 pages of facsimiles of Thérèse's letters.Letter writing at the end of the nineteenth century was an important activity for the people of France. Those who received letters from family and friends alike usually kept the hand-written texts sent to them as precious gifts. That is why this collection of letters by and to one of the greatest saints of modern times is so interesting to us today. No mere notes slapped together in distracted haste, the missives found in this volume reveal communications of warm personal sentiment along with expressions of lively spiritual development. Thérèse's efforts as a fifteen-year-old to enter Carmel before reaching the required age appear in revealing detail. This tortuous course of a very subtle diplomacy is set out not only by the letters of Thérèse herself, but also by those of so many others who shared her hopes and eventual victory. The translator-editor gives us 75 pages of introductory remarks to Thérèse's letters. This volume also includes 4 pages of facsimiles of Thérèse's letters.

Dorothy Day's unpretentious account of the life of St. Thérèse of Lisieux sheds light on the depth of Day's Catholic spirituality and illustrates why Thérèse's simplicity and humility are so vital for today. Whether you are called to the active life like Day or a more hidden existence like Thérèse, you will discover that these paths have much in common and can lead you to a love that has the power to transform you in ways that are unexpected and consequential.Now back in print, this short biography of St. Thérèse of Lisieux by Dorothy Day expresses the surprising yet profound connection between Day--the founder of the Catholic Worker movement who was praised by Pope Francis for her passion for justice and dedication to her faith--and the beloved saint best known for her Little Way.When Day first read St. Thérèse's autobiography, The Story of a Soul in 1928, she called it "pious pap." At the time, Day--a social activist who had been living a bohemian lifestyle--had only recently been baptized a Catholic. Some twenty-five years later, Day's perspective on Thérèse had so completely changed that she was inspired to write this biography. She did not find it an easy task: "Every time I sit down to write that book on the Little Flower I am blocked. . . . I am faced with the ...

The Little Flower: The Story of St. Therese of the Child Jesus (Saints Lives)
The Little Flower: The Story of St. Therese
"Papa, what's the new baby's name?" asked one of the Martin girls. Little Therese was "the baby" of the Martin family. She was also her Papa's "Little Queen." With her Mama, her Papa and her 4 big sisters to love her, Therese could have turned out to be a very spoiled little girl. And indeed, it is true that sometimes she was cross and naughty. But Therese had hit upon a plan: she had decided to become a saint. To do this, she would love God every minute and would always say, "Yes" to whatever He asked of her. Would this really make Therese into a saint? Wasn't it too easy? Or maybe it would sometimes be too hard? And wouldn\'t Therese forget about her plan as she grew older? This book tells what happened to little Therese: It shows how Therese received a second mother when she lost her first mother, how she was teased at school, and how she was cured of being a crybaby. It tells about her mysterious illness, her miraculous cure, her First Holy Communion, the terrible criminal whose soul she won back for God, and what she decided to do when she grew up. All in all, here is the wonderful true story of what happened when little Therese Martin set out to become a saint.

The Mother of the Little Flower: The Sister of St. Therese Tells Us about Her Mother
The Mother of the Little Flower: The Sister
Was St. Therese's mother herself a saint? The Church now says "Yes!" Zelie Martin and her husband, Louis, were declared Venerable by the Church in 1994 for their heroic virtue, and the couple's cause is now complete, ending with their cannonization in 2015. Zelie married at 27, bore 9 children, ran a home business and did a superb job of raising 5 daughters, including "the greatest saint of modern times" (St. Pius X). She died of breast cancer at 45, but her greatness was recognized by her family and friends, and is now known to the world. Zelie suffered many of the ordinary burdens of life, yet she was happy, loved her children madly and enjoyed them immensely. This book was written by her daughter, Celine, who had access to Zelie's letters and to the reminiscences of her older sisters in the Carmel of Lisieux. It is authentic and inspiring, showing what a tremendous life's work and accomplishment it is to be a truly Catholic mother. Looking at Zelie's picture, one can see her incredible character, integrity, goodness, constancy and love.

The Little Way of St Therese of Lisieux: In her own words
The Little Way of St Therese of Lisieux:
In 1897, hardly twenty-four years old, Thérèse Martin died of tuberculosis in her Normandy convent. Born to a devout middle-class family, Thérèse lost her mother when only four and later followed her sisters into religious life at a young age. These writings show how it is that this young French Carmelite, despite such a short and in many ways unassuming life, has inspired millions: how she overcame her own weaknesses and learned to offer every part of her life to Jesus, embracing the Cross in the small things of daily life. In 1995, the Church proclaimed her a Doctor of the Church, largely on account of this very spirituality of the Little Way.

This is not so much the story of a soul, but the story of a love, the treasured love the Servant of God Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen had for his dear St. Therese of Lisieux, his “Little Flower”.Because of this intimacy and the unfathomable admiration he had for her, what lies between these pages is nothing short of remarkable, not to mention utterly captivating.

A Family of Saints: The Martins of Lisieux--Saints Thérèse, Louis, and Zélie
A Family of Saints: The Martins of Lisieux--Saints
"God gave me a father and mother more worthy of heaven than of earth." —Saint Thérèse of LisieuxThe recent, and unprecedented, canonization by Pope Francis of a husband and wife, Louis and Zélie Martin, the parents of Saint Thérèse, has stirred a great interest in this extraordinary family. This work, by the highly regarded expert on the Martin family, Father Stéphane-Joseph Piat, O.F.M, is the definitive biography of this amazing "family of saints".Saint Thérèse, a Doctor of the Church, wrote in her classic spiritual biography, Story of a Soul, how important her family life was in setting the foundation for her spiritual life. She grew up in a close family, where the deep love of parents and children for God, neighbor, and each other was the very heart of their home and family life.This family of saints, who lived in the late 1800s and early 1900s, might appear from their quaint photographs to have lived a relatively serene and smooth path to sainthood, untarnished by modern problems. But, as this book shows, the reality is quite the opposite. They suffered from the loss of four children, the failure of a family business, and the death of Zélie, at forty-five, to breast cancer.The secret to their happiness then is the secret to our happiness now--unfailing love made p...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Thérèse of Lisieux, or Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face, born Marie-Françoise-Thérèse Martin, was a French Carmelite nun. She is also known as "The Little Flower of Jesus".She felt an early call to religious life, and overcoming various obstacles, in 1888 at the early age of 15, became a nun and joined two of her older sisters in the cloistered Carmelite community of Lisieux, Normandy. After nine years as a Carmelite religious, having fulfilled various offices such as sacristan and assistant to the novice mistress, and having spent the last eighteen months in Carmel in a night of faith, she died of tuberculosis at the age of 24. The impact of The Story of a Soul, a collection of her autobiographical manuscripts, printed and distributed a year after her death to an initially very limited audience, was great, and she rapidly became one of the most popular saints of the twentieth century. Pope Pius XI made her the "star of his pontificate".

The Truth About Therese: An Unflinching Look at
Discover the burning secrets of St. Therese's soul Scores of books have been written about St. Therese of Lisieux, but this is the first aimed at those persons, Catholic or not, who resist her, put off by all those roses and crudely painted plastic statues . . . and even by her virtues. (Not long before she died, Therese's confessor assured her she had never committed a mortal sin!) Author Henri Gheon was once among those put off by Therese's sweet reputation and by the tinseled, sugary devotions to this "little saint." Then he discovered how many good Catholics, at home in such simple devotions, were soon freed, without even realizing it, from the pretty-pretties that led them on, fnding the real Therese beneath the sugar roses and puffy clouds, behind the platitudes and pet-names that took all the salt out of her heroic story. They discovered as will readers of these remarkable pages the real Therese of Lisieux, an intense soul living a life of heroic grandeur amidst dull and all-too-worldly associates, a soul driven by a burning love of God even as she wrestled privately with great physical and emotional pain. That, shows Gheon, is what lay behind her smile. That's why she was canonized. And that's why Therese is the saint most fitted for our day, a model for those of us w...
