The Story of a Soul - St. Therese of Lisieux - Study Ed.

SKU: 27130


by: Saint Therese of Lisieux

A Study Edition
2-1/2 years before her death in 1897 at the age of 24, as Therese 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...

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 Therese'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 the world today.

This translation by Father Clarke was first published in 1975 is now accepted as the standard throughout the English-speaking world as a faithful and unaffected rendering of the Saint's own words. This 3rd edition includes a select bibliography of recent works in English on Therese along with the new referencing system for studies of her doctrine. 306 pages. Trade Paperback.
