Description

GRACE-FILLED ENCOUNTER SERIES (St Thérèse of Lisieux)

Fr Vincent O'Hara

Featuring the five great Teresas of the Carmelite tradition – Teresa of Avila, Teresa Margaret Redi, Therese of Lisieux, Teresa of the Andes and Teresa Benedicta (Edith Stein). This series will explore their experience of Jesus and their relationship with significant others in their lives. From these great women, you will learn about the inestimable value of authentic spiritual friendships – how our friendship with Christ can transform, as well as, be supported by our other encounters in life. Each presentation will be live-streamed.

‘Jesus my only love’
St Therese, the Little Flower, set out in life ‘to love Jesus, love him with a passion, love him like he had never been loved before’.  Described as ‘the greatest saint of modern times’, Therese drew on her unique relationship with her own father to develop boundless trust in ‘the Father of all’, thereby coming to her ‘Little Way’, which she pursued relentlessly in spite of the intensity of her suffering, especially in her final years.
