Format: Paperback
One of the most underappreciated books of the century. A translation of the critical edition of Therese's letters and those written to her from her birth till age seventeen. In "Story of a Soul" Therese writes "I find myself at a period in my life when I can cast a glance backward," but in the letters we accompany her day by day, and read what she wrote at 14 on the day of her visit with the Pope ("the good Pope is so old, one would say he is dead") and at 17 of her disappointment that her father could not attend her veiling ("Papa is not coming tomorrow! Celine, my tears are falling as I write . .. ") The notes are a rich documentation of Therese's environment, of the character of the Lisieux Carmel, and of her life, and reading through them chronologically yields a unique window on Therese's maturing and development over time. If you read the letters, you need no longer depend on the interpretations of others; you will be empowered to interpret Therese yourself. Please don't miss it.

If you only know about St. Therese from reading Story of a Soul, you will be surprised by the depth and spread of her correspondence. Some of the best quotes from the saint are found in her letters. The letters also fill in the gaps on time periods she does not speak of much in her autobiography. It is one thing to read her summary of her relationships in her autobiography and another to read the actual words she exchanged with family members, cousins, and fellow nuns. Essential reading for a deeper understanding of the Little Way of Spiritual Childhood.

Unless you are interested in letters from earliest childhood, the info in this book will not be of help. It is factual and accurate.
