Robin Maas, John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family
No spiritual writer has taught me more than this French housewife about the sanctifying power of the sacrament of marriage, especially those unions that for one reason or another might be labeled difficult. A true spiritual sister of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, Elisabeth Leseur discovered and practiced her own Little Way a form of sacrificial love and asceticism uniquely suited to the domestic context.
Lynn Nordhagen, When Only One Converts
Elisabeth Leseur s example of courageous generosity can strengthen every marriage, whether healthy or troubled. With lustrous humility and grace, she lights our way toward holiness in marriage, effective prayer for our loved ones, and the heights of personal sanctity.
Fr. Joseph Esper, Saintly Solutions
A profound self-portrait of a soul molded and transformed by divine grace. If St. Augustine s Confessions is analogous to the sun bright, powerful, and penetrating then Elisabeth Leseur s Secret Diary is like the moon: soft, friendly, and enchanting in its spiritual beauty.
