Description
Following a thorough introduction to the saint's life, The Complete Therese presents her classic, The Story of a Soul, in complete and unabridged form. Then, unique to this edition is a portion of the original edition rarely seen, describing the saint's final days as seen through the eyes of the Sisters of the Lisieux Carmel; plus a poignant collection of over seventy firsthand anecdotes about Therese recounted by the Sisters following her death.
Also included a comprehensive selection of prayers, letters, and poems written by Therese, and in both French and English, the poem that inspired her to call herself the "œLittle Flower."� Further appendices give important dates for her life, taking the reader up to 1997, one hundred years after her death, when Pope John Paul II declared her to be a Doctor of the Church. Beautiful engravings and photographs throughout the book give the reader a view of the Little Flower's childhood home and family, her growing-up years, life at Carmel, her death, and the original gravesite.
Millions of hearts have been touched by St. Therese of Lisieux's desire, not to be mighty and great, but to be a humble, little flower that would gladden God's eyes as he glances down at his feet. Now, yours will be, too.
