The spirituality and message of St Thérèse of Lisieux became known to millions through the publication of her autobiography Story of a Soul a year after her death. Here we hope you will find some insight to the intensity of her love for God, her prayerfulness and knowledge of Scripture and the simplicity of her life.

  In Story of a Soul St Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face wrote ‘I wondered what name I would be given in Carmel…. I thought of Little Jesus whom I loved so much and I said: Oh! How happy I would be if they called me Thérèse of the Child Jesus’ and ‘Until my coming to Carmel, I had never fathomed the depths of the treasures hidden in the Holy Face’.

  For me prayer is an aspiration of the heart, it is a simple glance directed to heaven, it is a cry of gratitude and love in the midst of trial, as well as joy; finally, it is something great, supernatural which expands my soul and unites me to Jesus. St Thérèse in Story of a Soul.
