Spiritual Childhood: The Spirituality of St. Therese of Lisiseux The Spirituality of St. Therese of Lisieux (Paperback)
|Author: Vernon Johnson|
|St. Therese of Lisieux, now a Doctor of the Church, summarized her spirituality in these simple but profound words, "My Little Way is all love". Her complete and unshakable trust in the love of God our Father was the foundation of her spiritual life, a childlike relationship with our Creator that raised her to the heights of sanctity in only 24 years of life.|
St. Therese's spirituality, her Little Way of Spiritual Childhood, is one that can be imitated and practiced by all souls, no matter what their state in life. Her spirituality has been recognized by the Church as a special gift from God for ordinary people everywhere to reach heroic sanctity.
Msgr. Vernon Johson, a famous convert and apostle of St. Therese, presents in this book the most clear, practical and yet profound explanation of this "little way", a way to perfection that changed his life and the lives of countless others. Johnson summarizes the spiritual approach of St. Therese in these three words: Love, Humility, Confidence.
