The Story of a Soul conveys St Therese of Liseux\'s \"Little Way\" of spiritual childhood - her \"elevator\" to Heaven, as she called it. This method was approved by Pope Pius XI as a way for all to grow in holiness through unfailing confidence and childlike delight in God\'s merciful love.
Again and again in this book, St. Therese shows us how her \"Little Way\" of love and trust comes straight from Sacred Scripture.
This book belongs in every Catholic home, for Pope St Pius X stated St. Therese of Liseux the \"greatest Saint of modern times\".

About St. Therese of Lisieux
St. Therese of Lisieux, also known as "Therese of the Child Jesus" and "The Little Flower", was the last of nine children born to Louis and Zelie Martin, at France in 1873. She was often anxious and depressed in childhood, as she suffered the early death of her mother. After she converted interiorly and began to read Thomas a Kempis' The Imitation of Christ, she joined 2 of her sisters in a discalced Carmelite convent as a nun at just 15 years old. After her oldest sister was elected prioress, Therese became a permanent novice to allay suspicions that her family was dominating the small community. She lived humbly, concealing her intense prayer life and countless sacrifices.
