One of the church's most beloved saints,
Therese Martin, Carmelite of Lisieux has had an impact on
the spiritual lives of thousands of believers. This
French nun's short life (ended at age 24) was one of great faith and
insight, and she was named patroness of France in 1947. Her
autobiography, Story of a Soul, has been translated from the
many languages and is a bestseller worldwide. This collection of her
poetry is a welcome addition to the story of her life. Her poems are
largely those of praise, thanking God for his faithfulness. She also
harbors a strong desire to become more like Christ and like Mary: kind,
hardworking, and loyal. She writes a set of poems about Jesus' birth,
and one in honor of Jeanne D'Arc (Joan of Arc). Often called "Little
