After Thérèse of Lisieux died on September 30, 1897, her popularity rapidly extended well beyond her homeland of France. Thérèse has been the inspiration of untold numbers of ordinary people to whom her life proclaimed in a compelling way this gospel truth: absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of God. Thérèse knew that God led her with all of her inadequacies to holiness. She assures us that God can do the same for us.

Each meditation shares Thérèse of Lisieux words, provides some historical context and roots her wisdom in Scripture, along with a suggested prayer.
