St. Benedict and St. Thérèse
The Little Rule & The Little Way
Fewer saints could me more different than Thérèse of Lisieux and Benedict of Nursia. One was a teenage girl in nineteenth-century France, the other the sixth-century founder of Western monasticism. Benedict lived to a ripe old age and was honoured by popes and monarchs, Thérèse died young in the obscurity of her provincial convent.
With sharp observations and profound insights, Dwight Longenecker unlocks the writings of Benedict and Thérèse so each one illuminate the other.
