Do you ever think Catholicism/Christianity is just too complicated, overwhelming, or massive? Do you want the entire thing simplified for you? Meet St. Therese of Lisieux and get to know her “Little Way.”

She’s the youngest saint and only one of three women in the history of Christianity to be named Doctor of the Church. She promised to spend her time in Heaven by doing good on earth. This is how it’s possible for St. Therese of Lisieux, who never left her convent in France, to travel the whole world, sending down a “shower of roses” as she did.

Mary Beth Bracy from Sophia Press Institute, and author of her own books on Therese, joins His HoliMess to discuss the latest book, “I Want To Travel The World” (the sub-title is the title of this episode) by the world-renown expert on the life of writings of St. Therese and former auxiliary bishop of Lisieux, Guy Gaucher, O.C.D.

Fr. Paul also reflects on his recent time spent in Lisieux and the life-changing impact a talk on Therese’s spirituality is affecting him significantly.
