Advent and Christmas: Wisdom from St. Therese of Lisieux

Looking for some spiritual reading for this coming Advent and Christmas season. You might want to check out Advent and Christmas Wisdom from St Therese



Even though she is a Doctor of the Church, St. Thérèse of Lisieux is more well-known for being the “little flower” of Jesus. Through her “little way,” she has inspired many Catholics to love God simply, devoutly, and with great love.  St. Thérèse believed that no act of faith is too small for God.  Loving God in this way wasn’t always easy for St. Thérèse, but even through her suffering and death at age twenty-four she tried to love God with all her heart. 

Author John Cleary uses passages from "Story of a Soul," the autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux to inspire us to embrace our own smallness this Advent and Christmas.
