book coverSt Therese of Lisieux
by Thomas Keating

In St Therese of Lisieux, Abbot Thomas Keating reflects on what St Therese understood the teaching of Jesus Christ to be.  Therese had an extraordinary penetration into the heart of Jesus' teaching, something she developed into a program for daily life.  Although she was only twenty-four years old when she died, Therese had great spiritual maturity.  Father Keating writes about the teachings of Jesus in the parables and then shows what insight Therese had into those enigmatic sayings.

According to Father Keating, St Therese tried to live the Gospel precept "To love one another as I have loved you!" on a daily basis.  She believed it was the best program because each of us can put it into daily practice and find the Kingdom of God in everyday life.  As Father Keating shows, St Therese's teaching continues to reveal to us that if we only build up instead of tear down others and fully and lovingly trust that Christ is with us until the end of time we will be transformed.
