Product Description

The Intimate Life of Saint Thérèse Portrayed by Those Who Knew Her

by Fr. Albert H. Dolan, O. Carm.
400 pp. paperback

 This book is Carmelite Father Albert Dolan’s unique collection of eight monographs, each of which deals with the temporal spiritual journey of our chosen vessel of grace, either as the Saint saw herself in the eyes of God, or as she was intimately known by her parents, four sibling sisters, fellow religious, childhood friends and others whose lives she touched after her death. One might call this redolent nosegay of inspirational testimonies an anthology in the Greek sense of that word, for anthos literally means a “gathering of flowers”. In order to compose his octave of devotion, Father Dolan traveled to France in 1924, to Normandy’s Alençon where Saint Therese was born, to her family home Les Buissonnets in Lisieux, to the Carmel of Lisieux, and to other French towns. Then he went to Rome where he and Pope Pius XI had a mutually productive discussion of his apostolate to make the “Little Way” of the Little Flower better known in homes and monasteries in America. At the Carmelite convent, he was blessed by priceless interviews with Saint Therese’s three sisters (who were nuns there) and one of her teachers. At Caen, he visited a fourth sister who had joined the Visitation order. One third of this book is dedicated to these precious recollections gathered from her living siblings. In fact, “Book Five” of the monographs is completely devoted to the Little Flower’s saintly mother Zélie who died when Therese was only four years old.
