Everything Is Grace
The Life and Way of Therese of Lisieux
Joseph F. Schmidt, FSC
Therese of Lisieux has been called the greatest saint of modern times, but some view her spirituality as sentimental and syrupy. Joseph F. Schmidt, FSC, dispels that notion by contending that Therese's "little way" is really the gospel message message – a message that can best be understood in the context of her life. Schmidt does a masterful job of weaving together biographical details with Therese's profound insights on God's love and mercy. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants an introduction to Therese's spirituality as well as for those who desire a deeper appreciation of her "little way" – a way that continues to speak to Catholics today.
Includes photographs of Therese as a young girl and throughout her life.
"It is rare to read something that gives us a new insights into St Therese of Lisieux. Brother Joseph Schmidt has managed to do so in a powerful way in this new work, which brings together very beautifully her central idea that "everything is grace." Disciples of St. Therese will enjoy and profit from it.
