SAINT THERESE OF LISIEUX her family her god her message
Why death ? How can we continue in hope when suffering and pain threaten to overwhelm us ? How, as people of faith, are we to deal with the questions that somtimes nag at our minds ? How can we remain faithful - and joyful - when we are shaken by circumstances of our life ? And the first of all, how are we to love ? Thérèse answered these questions both by her life and through her writing. Fr. Bro explores those answers with the same freshness ans boldness that characterize Thérèse herself.
