/ -- Day by Day in the Little Way: 365 Reflections on the Teachings of St. Therese of Lisieux, written by award-winning journalist and Discalced Carmelite Secular, Susan Brinkmann, OCDS, is not just a daily devotional but is a mini-formation program designed to give the reader a practical understanding of the teachings of St. Therese.
Each day begins with a quote, followed by a short teaching, personal reflection and call-to-action, as well as a prayer to Therese. As any spiritual director knows, the best formation for the soul is one that includes both the head and the heart, the intelligence and the will. By challenging the reader to both read and act upon Therese's teachings, they will acquire a deeper understanding of spiritual childhood while gaining new insight into their own weaknesses. By praying to Therese for the daily graces needed to meet each day's challenge, the reader will gradually gain the strength to make the Little Way their own.
"The Little Way appeals to those of us who consider ourselves to be too small and weak to reach the heights of sanctity like the great saints," Brinkmann says. "This book teaches us how to recognize, accept, and even love those weaknesses, because our littleness is what attracts God to us. As long as we we're sincerely trying our best to love and serve God, He will meet us where we are. Maybe we won't become roses or lilies in His garden, but in God's eyes, little violets and pansies are just as beautiful!"
Popular Catholic journalist and author, Patti Maguire Armstrong calls the format of the book "a powerful 3-part meditation in under 60 seconds" that teaches the faithful how to integrate the Little Way into their own lives.
Day by the Day in the Little Way is a must-have for any devotee of the Little Flower of Lisieux, regardless of where they are in their spiritual life, and makes a perfect Christmas gift.
The book retails for $19.99 and is published by the Catholic Life Institute Press. Individual copies can be purchased here
