Product Details

Praise

"In his balanced, insightful narrative, Bishop Ahern avoids the pitfalls of hagiography: He gives us no plaster saint, but a full-bodied portrait, full of shadows and light. The reader is left with a sense of the sheer divine mystery of the love and suffering?in every sense the passion?of these two young people touched by God. It is a most timely book for a secular age; it is also a gift."
–Charles Scribner III

"A beautiful and inspiring story; truly a book about a saint for sinners."
–Mary Higgins Clark

"A marvelous book. Perhaps I knew Therese as a saint before I read her letters to Maurice and his to her; I did not know her as a woman. Now she fascinates me more than ever."
–John Cardinal O’Connor
