More importantly, St Therese of Lisieux helps us understand the great value of accepting our everyday trials and sufferings, and how to transform them into a deeper experience of Love.

This program focuses on St Therese of Lisieux. We explore the major events of her childhood, the events that led to her entry into Carmel and the significant contribution she made in her short life. We focus primarily on her most famous work, The Story of a Soul. From this work we will explore the teaching of Spiritual Childhood. We seek to understand our relationship to the Father through the eyes of this beloved French Carmelite. We also explore her teaching on prayer and suffering. Finally, we explore Therese’s mission to the rest of the Church and see how the life of Carmel can be so beneficial to those who are looking for spiritual assistance in their journey to the Lord.
