Classic biography of St Therese of Lisieux
I do not repent of having surrendered myself to love'. Born in 1873 at Alençon in France, Marie Françoise Thérèse Martin died in 1897 aged 24 of tuberculosis at her Carmelite convent in Lisieux. She was canonised in record time, only 28 years after her death, and 100 years later John Paul II declared her a doctor of the Church. This authoritative life of Thérèse, a true classic, tells the story of one of Christ’s little ones.
