St. Benedict and St. Therese


St. Benedict and St. Therese stand as two of the monumental figures in the history of the Western Church. Their impact on Christian thought cannot be underestimated, yet never before have they been viewed as spiritual father and daughter. From Benedict’s “little rule” the “little way” of Therese, these two great saints teach us to find ourselves in the ordinary.

Fr Longenecker explores the lives and writings of St Benedict–a grandfather figure, and St Therese–a little girl. In them he finds the wisdom of age and the innocence of childhood. Through the lives of these two great saints we discover the way of spiritual childhood which is also the way of great and venerable wisdom.
