Awakening Your Soul to the Presence of God

“Fr. d’Elbée’s retreat, based on St. Thérèse’s ‘little way,’ draws us into the immensity of that ‘little way.’ Sophia Institute Press has done us all a great service in bringing this work back into print.”
Thomas Howard

Bishop of Lincoln

Publisher Description

The key to happiness from one who found it in joyful abundance: St. Thérèse of Lisieux

This spiritual classic has long been beloved by Catholics for its wondrous distillation of the teaching of St. Thérèse of Lisieux into a reader-friendly set of meditations. It’s perfect as a personal retreat when you have only a few moments to spare each day — and for spiritual reading anytime and anywhere.

Fr. Jean C. J. d’Elbée, a French priest deeply imbued with St. Thérèse’s spirit, brings you St. Thérèse’s teachings on God’s love and the confidence in Him that it should inspire in your soul; humility, peace, and fraternal charity; the apostolate; the Cross; and what it means truly to abandon yourself to Divine Providence. I Believe in Love has helped countless souls embark on the way to the Father. It will help you focus on Him throughout each day, rest in Him amid your troubles, and live joyfully with Him at every moment!

You'll learn:

  • How you can (and must) have confidence in God, not in spite of your sufferings, but because of them!
  • The secret that makes sense of the pain and trouble in your life — no matter how great
  • One thing you must cherish in your soul, or you’ll never learn to love as Jesus loves
  • God’s love for you personally: are you really aware of its reality in every moment of your life? How you can see it at work
  • The spiritual goldmine that is at your fingertips now — if you know where to find it
  • What you must do before you speak about the Faith, or your words will be useless
  • Crosses: why you can’t avoid them — and why you should love the ones God sends you
  • How to deal with failures, reversals, and difficult moments of all kinds — without losing your spiritual or emotional equilibrium
  • The Fall of Adam and Eve: how even it shows God’s abiding love for every soul
  • The sin that destroys countless souls — since few know how to recognize and fight it
  • Do you wish you had the love of God that the saints have — but are discouraged by your weaknesses? Why you should take heart
  • Are you drawing on all the treasures of the Eucharist and the saints? How you can be sure
  • The comforting reason why our Lord at times chooses not to deliver you from trials
  • Much more that will show you how to live in the glorious love of God at each moment!
