by John Cleary
St.Thérèse of Lisieux, the Little Flower of Jesus, bore much suffering, from her mother's death when she was young to declining health and an untimely death during her time in the Carmelite convent. Despite her sufferings, St. Thérèse continued to love Jesus in her little way. In Lent and Easter Wisdom, John Cleary uses passages from St. Thérèse's classic autobiography, The Story of a Soul, to comfort and challenge you this Lenten season. As you meditate on Saint Thérèse's life, let her show you how to keep your faith when you suffer and how to find your way to God when you are lost.
