    Something New with Saint Thérèse: Her Eucharistic Miracle

    Though St. Thérèse of Lisieux lived a short, hidden life in a Carmelite monastery in a small town in France, she predicted that after her death the whole world would love her and promised to send a shower of roses, spending her Heaven doing good upon earth until the end of time. True to her word, the Little Flower has favored countless souls with her friendship, and her name and image can be found in every corner of the earth. Pope St. Pius X called her “the greatest Saint of modern times,” and the nine popes following him have all endorsed her Little Way of Spiritual Childhood. She is the Patroness of the missions alongside St. Francis Xavier, Patroness of France with St. Joan of Arc, and in 1997, Pope St. John Paul II named her the 33rd Doctor of the Church. And yet after 120 years of this young nun’s universal acclaim, author Suzie Andres has found something brand new to say about St. Thérèse. Taking a little known petition from Thérèse’s Act of Oblation to Merciful Love, the author reveals a Eucharistic miracle that the Little Flower not only lived, but promoted among those close to her. This book begins with an explanation of St. Thérèse’s Eucharistic miracle, and goes on to find evidence of this miracle in the lives of other great Saints, from Margaret Mary to Padre Pio. The author then uses Thérèse’s own arguments to prove that this particular grace, as well as the Act of Oblation to Merciful Love, is meant for all little souls. Something New with St. Thérèse is an invitation to readers to take further steps along the Little Way and into the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.

    Stations of the Cross with Our Sister Saint Thérèse

    “Every scribe instructed in the Kingdom of Heaven is like a householder who brings forth out of his storeroom things both new and old.” Matthew 13:52 St. Thérèse of Lisieux, well acquainted with the Kingdom and famous for showering roses from Heaven, has done it again. In this little book, apt quotations from the Little Flower appear alongside beautiful old fashioned block print images of the traditional Stations of the Cross. The combination provides all little souls – from children, converts, and beginners in the spiritual life to those who have accompanied Jesus for decades – with a fresh set of meditations on Jesus’ infinite love as expressed in His Passion and Death. Each Station begins with the customary “We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee . . .” and ends with an Our Father, Hail Mary, or Glory Be. Following the fourteen Stations are St. Thérèse’s Prayer to the Holy Face, her sister Celine’s painting of the Holy Face (after the Shroud of Turin), the indulgenced Prayer Before a Crucifix, and a brief explanation of indulgences. St. Thérèse described prayer as “a lifting up of the heart; a simple glance heavenwards; a cry of gratitude and of love, in the midst of trials as well as amidst joys. It is something great, something supernatural, which expands the soul and unites it with Jesus.” With this book, she invites readers to join her in a simple glance heavenwards, a cry of gratitude and love, something supernatural to unite the soul with Jesus as He proceeds step by step, Station by Station, to His Passion and Death for love of us. Walk the Way of the Cross with this Doctor of the Church as she brings forth from her Mother’s storeroom a blend of prayers both old and new. Perfect for individual devotion, group prayer, and congregational use in a parish, St. Thérèse’s little way of spiritual childhood and the Stations of the Cross blend to produce a fragrant offering of love.
