Thérèse de Lisieux left 21 prayers, apart from those that dot autobiographical manuscripts, poems and pious recreations. Spontaneous prayers written in joy or distress, prayers composed for novices, a missionary or a laywoman, they faithfully reflect her spiritual portrait and burn with this passionate love for God that she wanted to communicate to her friends near or far. The in-depth exegesis of these texts, in particular the act of offering to merciful Love and the prayers to the Holy Face, makes it possible to find the great Teresian themes in their first outpouring: “It is prayer, c 'it is the sacrifice that makes all my strength, she said; these are the invincible weapons that Jesus gave me, they can more than words touch souls.
