One of the all-time favorite Catholic books, in which St. Therese teaches her "Little Way" of Spiritual Childhood. This outstanding book has sold many millions of copies worldwide and was instrumental in bringing down the "shower of roses" which St. Therese promised to send from Heaven.
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."

The Story of a Soul
Edouard H.(Farmington NH., April 15, 2016)
I was a person who liked to sink his teeth into heavyweight stuff, like I read Johnathon Edwards. Heavy Christian theology. But; I have never read something like this, such a simple loving faith from a a young girl who thought it to be blessed in all that she suffered. As it goes this little book by the "Little Flower" Has given me a love and joy of my re-found Catholic faith that I have never known, this little book can reach a soul like mine, then it is great.
The story of Therese de Lisieux an overview
PROF.PAULO DE LACERDA,MD,PhD(Paris, February 12, 2014)
Being a retired physician and as visitor of Lisieux cathedral where Therese de Lisieux is buried I found PEACE in my SOUL AND HEART. With a smell of roses never felt before as a divine signal of her presence among us. Her legacy of Love for Mankind is a reality and miracles show us her divine power by God the Almighty to all Mankind. But all worldwide men and women of FAITH may have certainly the support and spiritual aid by the divine Therese de Lisieux, the Little Flower.
