The so-called “Little Flower” was a little-known, cloistered Carmelite nun who died at a young age; and yet, within a few years of her death, Thérèse of Lisieux had a worldwide reputation. She is now a Doctor of the Church, and her small autobiography is considered a spiritual classic. What was it that made this little flower so great?  

In this new addition to the Word on Fire Classics collection, get to know the saint who Bishop Barron says “has been a personal friend for a long time” and who has touched the hearts of millions with her simple but profound realization: “My vocation is love!” In her autobiographical Story of a Soul, Thérèse walks readers through her devout family life, her ever-deepening personal conversion, and her years of trial and suffering. A true “doctor of grace,” she illuminates the “little way” to sainthood: childlike simplicity before God the Father and a willingness to do small things with great love.
