"Therese has been such a presence in my adult life--it is as if I have known her personally; she is as real and alive to me as my lifelong friends... I've identified three gifts that Therese has given me, which I would like to offer in this book to everyone seeking to find more meaning in their faith and their journey to find God." --Patrick Ahern
Transformation in our lives happens when we live with the confidence that "God is nothing but mercy and love." In this inspiring book, beloved author Patrick Ahern looks at the teachings of St. Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower, through the lens of his own personal experiences in which this "saint for our times" played such an important role for more than seventy years. With honesty and humility, he delves into the transformational love that infused her faith, led her to be named one of only four female Doctors of the Catholic Church, and gave Ahern's own journey direction and meaning.
Ahern focuses on what he calls the three gifts of Therese: her universal appeal, her conviction, and her little way. Echoing Therese's recognition that bureaucracy, penances, rules and commandments miss the message of love that she knew to be true, he says, "She convinced me that someone as ordinary as I could aspire to the love of God, which filled her heart to overflowing." He hopes the same for his readers.
