Publishers Description She lived 24 years and was an obscure nun for nine of those. She died in 1897 and was canonized in 1925. Yet she is known the world over by Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Her statue soon appeared in most Catholic churches in the world. With St. Joan of Arc, she shares the title \"Patroness of France\" and with St. Francis Xavier the honor of \"Principal Patroness of all Missionaries.\" Her devotees acknowledge her as a second St. Jude in her powerful intercession with God. Her appeal is universal-from peasants to Popes-and people of all stations know her and call upon her for help. What factors conspired to shape St. Therese of the Child Jesus? John Beevers addresses himself to this question in The Making of a Saint. As author of an earlier biography, The Storm of Glory, and as translator of her autobiography, The Story of a Soul, he brings to his task an authority on her life unsurpassed perhaps by any writer in English. The story of this life is a marvel-a miracle-of divine grace. For the life of St. Therese is the lesson to all men of spiritual greatness to be achieved by perfect love of God and total consecration of all our actions, even the smallest, to His greater honor and glory.

Review from the Publisher Mar 16, 2001
The life of St. Therese is a lesson to all men of spiritual greatness to be achieved by perfect love of God and total consecration of all our actions, even the smallest, to His greatest honor and glory. This famous author offers many spiritual gems of wisdom and inspires renewed affection for the incomparable child saint who "ran as a giant in the way" to sanctity.

Delightful. Sep 17, 1999
John Beevers did much to make Therese known and loved in English-speaking countries. While Fr. John Clarke's translation of Story of a Soul has replaced the Beevers version as the authoritative translation, this book remains an excellent commentary on Therese's life and saint-making. You will enjoy.
