it because I felt so overwhelmed by her magnificent life? This wonderful soul was so committed to her faith that she was cannonized a Saint and a Doctor of the Catholic Church--all in a life of twenty-four years!
The simplicity of her writing made for easy reading. Her modesty was impressive since comparing todays teens to her attitude was huge. She was a humble young girl and kept her humility for her entire life which did not last long.
She spent her life wanting to die and go to heaven; so in many respects, she seemed depressed at times. Even as a young girl, she wanted her mother to die so that she could go to her real home (which is heaven) and Therese would be with her forever.
Therese felt that she would be able to come down to earth on her death and help others. She did understand that God wold have to make that decision so she did not live in elusions. She came across at times as being helpless and very small--but her faith was strong and powerful.
Overall, the book made me to understand a true saints mindset. She did pass-on at 24 years old. I have no doubt that she is indeed in heaven with Jesus and all of the other saints. Our almighty GOD must be so proud of her for her devotion. curious ruby
I have read this book more than once, and each time I am encouraged. Here is the story of an ordinary person, who lived an extraordinary life in faith. She was not superhuman; had the same difficulties we all do accepting and loving others; she made sainthood attainable.
