Not only has John Clarke offered chronological clarity, photographs, and a biographical guide offering proper names/description of those mentioned within the text; John Clarke, O.C.D. offers a Biblical Index along with the 'normal' index found in most text. The Biblical Index brings the reader even closer to St. Therese. Here one may bring themselves to a greater understanding of that immense Love St. Therese of Lisieux had for our Lord. For those who wish to study the life of St. Therese further, I would highly recommend this awe-inspiring text.
This text is offered by ICS Publications (Institute of Carmelite Studies), Washington, D.C. There are several other texts available from the ICS Publications on St. Therese of Lisieux. Inside, on the very last page, there is a small paragraph on the Institute of Carmelite Studies with addresses for those who may be interested in the Discalced Carmelite way of life.
That work may make it less evident that Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face was a young woman who slowly died of a horrible painful disease. Death was looking her in the face for an extended period of time and she interacted with her sisters much during this time.
It would be easy, and erroneous, to think of St. Therese as merely a sheltered woman who was sentimental about the faith and never had any temptations against it. While she acknowledges that she was privileged to have a loving family and a lot was given to her, her life was not easy or sentimental.
For those struggling in life, we may see the saints as impossible examples, but in this work you see a human who loved Jesus, but also was assaulted by temptations towards atheism, materialism, and nihilism, while suffering a deadly disease which caused her pain constantly.
She knew it would kill her, but she did not know when. Her words during this time may be very enlightening to those now. One will see that a holy life is not sentimental. Loving God is not about feelings or inclinations. One will see that temptations towards things of this world are something which can assault anyone, and that to give up faith because of them is against the example of the saints.
This work is written as a compilation of notes from various people, and as such, it has a lot of footnotes and explanations as many quotes are literal or in an unseen context. It is well worth studying for those who want to follow the example of the saint and to see what her life was in reality.

The book was listed as good. It is true that the cover is good and the pages clean. However, every page turned falls out of the book. This is unacceptable.Published 19 days ago by wjpowers
