The Truth about St. Therese Revealed

"Sentimental hogwash!"
That's what some Catholic still think about
St. Thérèse of Lisieux


Author Henri Gheon was once
among those put off by St. Thérèse's sweet

reputation and by 
sugary devotions to her.

Then, he discovered how many
good Catholics, at home with simple
devotions, were soon freed from the 

distractions and temptations that led them on.

He found the real 
Thérèse beneath the 
sugar roses and puffy clouds, behind the platitudes and
pet-names that took all the salt out of her heroic story.

Scores of books have been written about Thérèse,
but none have taken an unflinching look at
her life, sufferings, and sacrifices . . . 

. . . until now.

The Truth About Thérèse 
reveals the real 
Thérèse of Lisieux—
an intense soul living a 
life of heroic grandeur
amidst dull and all-too-worldly associates.

In these pages you'll discover a
soul driven by a burning love of God even as she
wrestled privately with great emotional and physical pain.

This remarkable book will show you what lay beyond
her smile, why she was canonized, and why 
Thérèse is the 
saint most fitted for our day—a model for those of us
whom, whether we like it or not, God has called
to hidden lives of quiet drama, desire, and sacrifice.

Whether you’ve just begun to pray or have been faithfully praying for years, the wisdom in The Basic Book of Catholic Prayer will help you pray better. It will rescue your prayers from distraction and superficiality and transform them into real occasions for communion with God.
Fr. Lawrence Lovasik here clears away misunderstandings that many people have about prayer — and shows you innumerable ways you can avoid common obstacles and deepen your prayer life, no matter how much or how little you may have prayed before.
You’ll learn what prayer is, why it’s necessary, and how to practice the essential forms of Catholic prayer. You’ll discover how the Church’s sacraments fortify your prayer — and how prayer, in turn, enhances your reception of the sacraments. You’ll find out how to bring to your own prayers the qualities that make prayer effective. Your prayers will become more heartfelt, more focused, and more full of love for God.
Soon your prayer will fill you with a divine peace and joy that no one will be able to take from you. You’ll achieve the glorious aim of all prayer: union with God!
You’ll grow in prayer and in the graces it brings you as you learn:
  • Why true prayer is not necessarily a matter of words
  • Liturgical prayer: why you must pray with the Church
  • Four things you must bear in mind in order to pray better
  • Why prayer is essential for your salvation even though God knows all that you need
  • Two essential ingredients that transform thinking about God into genuine prayer
  • Swamped with earthly cares or selfish interests? Why prayer at such moments makes such a difference, hard as it may be
  • Temptations: practical ways prayer helps you resist even the strongest of them
  • Distractions in prayer: four ways you can keep them from disturbing you
