“I feel that my mission is about to begin, my mission to make God loved as I love Him, to teach souls my little way.”
“These words were spoken by St. Therese of the Child Jesus on July 17, 1897, a few months before her death on September 30, 1897. When her sister, Mother Agnes of Jesus, asked her ‘And what is this little way you want to teach to souls?’ Therese answered: ‘It is the way of spiritual childhood, the way of trust and absolute surrender’.” (Story of A Soul, Intro. pp. xi)
St. Therese made this astounding prediction of her upcoming posthumous mission 120 years ago today. Her autobiography, Story of A Soul, spread like wildfire within years of her death and taught countless Catholics and non-Catholics how to live out her Little Way just as she had lived it out in her own life.
My goal with this website is to introduce the spiritual genius of St. Therese to those unfamiliar with her and to reintroduce her to those who thought they knew her and have since moved on. My name is Paul Fisher and I will tell you a little more about myself at a later time, but this website is not about me – it is about YOU. It is about your spiritual journey and your relationship with God and how St. Therese can help you immensely with both. After all, she is a Doctor of the Church so I’m far from the only one who believes this.
So let us get to know St. Therese and some of her spiritual friends together…
