Wow. I understand why Therese of Lisieux is not only a very popular saint but a Doctor of the Church. I found it very easy to relate to her and in some places saw that she struggles with the same trials I do. The epilogue giving the details of her death made me cry a little. I can see why the pastor compared her life to my brother-in-laws at his funeral.

I had already discovered parts of her "little way" through my own trials and I now have a greater appreciation for this way of living as a virtuous life.
