The Handbook of Heavenly Guidance Aug 28, 2007
This is such a wonderful account of people's experience with St. Therese and the myriad of ways that she uses to show people which direction to go when faced with a difficult decision or whether their petition for a favor has been granted.
I believe in all cases through St. Therese's intercession that everyone's sincere prayers are answered but not always in the way they would expect. Though, I might add in this book of 'Little Stories' it certainly seems that most prayers are answered in the most apparent way.
It is difficult not to be touched to the point of tears when reading and rereading this book which I call 'The Handbook of Heavenly Guidance'!
Excellent Fast Reading Jan 12, 2007

Little Favours from St. Therese of Lisieux Jul 25, 2006
In reading this book, I find how a saint who followed the small, hidden path to Our Lord's heart, was able, after her death to help the "little" people of the world.
Most Catholics know St. Therese, but I would ask non-Catholics to also investigate her life as one of simplicity and devotion to Jesus Christ.
Shower of Heavenly Roses - inspiring stories Aug 12, 2005
All stories in this book serve as inspiration to many to become more and more closer to Jesus through the little flower's intercession. All those whom I shared this book with told me that once they start reading the book, they could not put it down. Some even experience little miracles themselves. And to others, they got to know St. Therese more and now invoke her powerful intercession as well. One lady I gave the book to shared with me that she didn't really know St. Therese that well, but after reading the book, she wanted to have a picture of St. Therese with her little prayers on it. To her amazement, she found a little card with St. Therese' picture on her bedroom, but nothing was printed on it. It was a two fold card but inside was blank. She wished it contain some kind of novena prayers as she would like to start a novena with her. The following day, that same card had the 24 Glory Be's novena inside. When she came to see me before she left for the Philippines, I had the prompting to give her a beautiful 11 x 14 picture of St. Therese. She was just so thrilled to see the picture as she also wished for a bigger picture of St. Therese. Thank you Elizabeth for putting together such inspiring stories.
a "little companion" May 1, 2005
Therese of Lisieux's autobiography is a book I love to take with me when I travel or have a long day with a lot of waiting. Elizabeth Ficocelli's book is a lot like that as well -- a book you can either read from cover to cover or, better yet, dip into to see inspirational stories from people of all different backgrounds. I was amazed at how many different kinds of people have experienced graces from Therese, and in all sorts of different circumstances, including weddings, distance of family members, and so forth. I like to read each story, then say a prayer asking that I can receive the grace with the same openness that many of these people did. Final note -- you'll love the story from Tara Lipinski, the Olympic figure skater!
