Item description for Everything Is Grace: The Life and Way of Therese of Lisieux by Joseph F. Schmidt...
Overview Therese of Lisieux has been called the greatest saint of modern times, but some view her spirituality as sentimental and syrupy. Joseph F. Schmidt, FSC, dispels that notion by contending that Therese's "little way" is really the gospel message-a message that can best be understood in the context of her life. Schmidt does a masterful job of weaving together biographical details with Therese's profound insights on God's love and mercy. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants an introduction to Therese's spirituality as well as for those who desire a deeper appreciation of her "little way"-a way that continues to speak to Catholics today. Includes photographs of Therese as a young girl and throughout her life.

Great Inights into the spirituality of St. Theresse of Lisieux Aug 22, 2008
Brother Joseph Schmidt presents an extraordinary life of the Little Flower. Brother Joseph says, "Theresa is our comtemporary" and so she is. By her image of God as living and merciful she pre-dated Vatican II. After reading Brother Schmidt's, "Everything is Grace," I re-read Theresa's "Story of a Soul. Thanks to Brother Schmidt, I got much more out of the second reading of Theresa's autobiography
An Ordinary Saint Aug 1, 2008
This book really draws the reader into the mystery of sainthood. But, it does it in such a real and simple way. Therese was real and simple. It's actually possible to see oneself in her. This was an amazing experience for me.

In Everything Is Grace, Joe Schmidt elegantly helped me to fall in love with Therese. Therese showed me how to walk in the heart of love. The gifts of surrender and gratitude have become for me a daily offering. Bearing serenely those behaviors that are displeasing to me has become a daily challenge. Joe Schmidt helped convince me that Therese's "Little Way" is the only way. Joe Schmidt's clarity, precision, and ease of reading were highlights for me in Everything is Grace. I continue to highly recommend this book to others.
Review by Rita Schmitz, CSJ
Everything Is Grace - This book is grace. Jul 26, 2008
I have read several books on the life of St. Therese and enjoyed them all. This one, however, is much more than the story of a sweet, young girl. This one makes real the grit and determination of a woman bent on knowing and loving Jesus within her world. She awakens my spirit to do the same. The author has shared not only the facts of Therese's life but has also shared deep insights into the life of this woman of faith.

Joseph Schmidt, FSC has written a new and refreshingly insightful book on Therese of Lisieux, using her original and unedited documents. She becomes more accessible to us little ones and that was the intention of her Little Way. Steven Vesely, S.T. Secretary General Missionary Servants of the Most Holy Trinity
