Written under obedience, the book conveys her secrets of great holiness achieved in ordinary life, teaching the "Little Way of Spiritual Childhood" her "elevator" to Heaven, as she called it. She continually shows us in this book how her "Little Way of love and confidence" comes straight from Sacred Scripture. This method has been approved and promulgated by Pope Pius XI as a way of holiness for all.
No Catholic should be ignorant of the mighty "little" Therese or her Little Way. The Story of a Soul is a book that belongs in every Catholic home.
