Join us as we read through, Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux. Only 24 at the time of her death, her story has become a modern spiritual classic read by millions. We’ll discover the great themes of her spirituality: confidence and love, the little way, abandonment to God’s merciful love, and her mission in the church and world today.
