The greatest spiritual best-seller of our time! St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the Little Flower, was only 24 years old when she died in 1897. Yet her writings continue to have a tremendous impact throughout the world, making her one of the most popular of all spiritual writers. Sharing memories from early childhood through her life as a Carmelite nun, Thérèse opens her heart to us. This bride of Christ reveals her passion and longing for union with God. Her simplicity is charming, and we begin to believe that we can travel the path to salvation that she points out to us. Thérèse called her doctrine 'the little way of spiritual childhood,' and it is based on her complete and unshakeable confidence in God's love for us. As she said herself of the writings that became this book, 'What I have written will do a lot of good. It will make the kindness of God better known.'Show more
During her lifelong service to the poorest of the poor, Mother Teresa became an icon of compassion for people of all religions; her extraordinary contributions to the care of the sick, the dying, and thousands of others nobody else was prepared to look after has been recognized and acclaimed throughout the world. Little is known, however, about her own spiritual heights or her struggles. This correspondence, from her early years in religious life through her years as foundress of a new religious community, reveals the inner spiritual life of one of the most beloved and influential religious figures of our time. These writings and reflections, almost all of which made public here for the first time, reveal her struggles and even her sense of abandonment by God. Yet these revelations encourage and strengthen us as they shed light on Mother Teresa’s interior life in a way that shows the depth and intensity of her faith and holiness. Published to coincide with the tenth anniversary of her death, Come Be My Light is an intimate portrait of a woman whose life and work continue to be admired by millions of people.Show more
