My way is all of trust and love. I dont understand souls who fear so tender a Friend. Thrse of Lisieux, 9 May 1897 Saint Thrse of Lisieux, Doctor of the Church and one of the greatest women of modern times, lived an uneventful, ordinary life of an enclosed Carmelite nun in a small provincial French town in the late years of the last century. She was a nun for a mere nine years, calmly and heroically meeting a painful death at the young age of twentyfour years. Her companions within the strict enclosure numbered little more than two dozen, and many of them never recognized anything so very special about her. However, within a few decades she became one of the most loved of all saints. It has been only a little more than a century since she discovered a short, direct, new way to spiritual fulfillment and fruitfulness; a little way available to everyone in any state and walk of life. Living the Little Way of Love with Thrse of Lisieux explores that little way, showing readers how to understand it, possess it, and make it their own. According to Nelson the little way is for action, not for uninvolved admiration. This book is a practical exploration of Thereses inspiration the how, what, why and when of her ideas considered within our ordinary daily life. The purpose is to encourage and assist the reader in the daily practice of the little way of love. A way that is open to all whatever their particular beliefs, circumstance or condition. It will inspire optimism and renewed hope and purpose in a world so often devoid of spiritual meaning.… (more)
