When Thérèse Martin died in Lisieux, France in 1897 at the age of only 24, very few people even knew who she was. Now, a century later, many millions of people revere her as St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus, and Popes have called her "The greatest saint of modern times." And Pope John Paul II took it even another step further and declared her a Doctor of the Church, one of only three women to be so.
What is it about this young woman who lived a hidden, unknown life as a Carmelite nun, that is so appealing to so many people, that has such a powerful message and witness of the Gospel for our times? What is her message, and her doctrine of "the Little Way of Spiritual Childhood" that focuses on love, humility and confidence?
This beautiful, moving film, narrated by award-winning Joe Campanella, explores why so many ordinary people are strongly drawn to St. Thérèse. It tells the story of her life, and also features in-depth coverage of the amazing tour of her relics in the USA, and interviews with journalists, scholars, Bishops, psychiatrists, priests, nuns and scores of people from around the country that reflect on her appeal and powerful message.
