Description - St.Therese of Lisieux by Thomas Keating

The writings of St. Therese of Lisieux have influenced thousands of people, including American Catholic convert Dorothy Day and Pope John Paul II who made a pilgrimage to Lisieux in her honour in 1980. In ST. THERESE OF LISIEUX: A TRANSFORMATION IN CHRIST, Abbot Thomas Keating reflects on what St Therese understood the teaching of Jesus Christ to be. St. 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, St. Therese had an extraordinary spiritual maturity. Father Keating writes about the teachings of Jesus in the parables and then shows what extraordinary insight St. 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 to propose to people because anybody could do it and because the Kingdom of God was and is in everyday life and in what we, as individuals, do with it. 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.
