Christus Vivit 57: Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus

Pope Francis profiles not just another saint, but a Doctor of the Church. To get to know her, read her autobiography. If you prefer a listening experience, hear what Bishop Sheen said of her.

57. Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus was born in 1873. At fifteen years of age, having overcome many difficulties, she succeeded in entering the Carmelite convent. Thérèse lived the little way of complete trust in the Lord’s love and determined to fan with her prayers the fire of love burning in the heart of the Church.

Remember to check Pope Francis’ Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation on this link at the Vatican site.
