The Love that Keeps Us Sane

Product Description

The Love That Keeps Us Sane

Living the Little Way of St. Thérèse of Lisieux

Marc Foley, OCD

This volume offers a portrayal of St. Thérèse as a real person who experienced and dealt with all the vicissitudes and trials of the human condition. What distinguished her, however, was her capacity to deal with the absurdities of daily life without losing perspective. Her great gift was the ability to see everything in the light of eternity, and it was this insight that helped her to keep all things their proper proportion. In this volume her gift is shared with readers who are encouraged to embrace her view as they attempt to keep sane amid the struggles of everyday living.
