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.

St Therese
Some Words of St Thérèse

red roseGod gave me a Father and Mother more worthy of Heaven than of Earth.

...God Our Father loves us always, absolutely, unfailingly, eternally.

How great is the power of prayer!

Until my coming to Carmel, I had never fathomed the depths of the treasures hidden in the Holy Face.

Jesus does not demand great actions from us but simply surrender and gratitude.


I understood that without love all words are nothing.

I am not dying; I am entering into life.

I feel that my mission is about to begin, my mission to make God loved as I love Him, to teach souls my little way.

I go to Him with confidence and love… red rose
