“Walk with St. Teresa as she shares her insights into prayer. Enjoy this special 12-talk series by leading Carmelite scholar and engaging professor Keith Egan. Teresa of Avila, a wise mystic and the first woman Doctor of the Church, was one of Christianity’s greatest teachers of prayer. Discover for yourself what made Teresa’s insights into prayer and mysticism so timeless.”
“Prof. Keith Egan, PhD, discusses the early life of St. Thérèse of Lisieux in this excerpt from his new 12-lecture series, “Thérèse of Lisieux: Wisdom’s Daughter.” Join Prof. Egan, a Carmelite spirituality expert, in discovering why Thérèse of Lisieux is, in the words of Pope Pius X, the “greatest saint of modern times.” You will explore the remarkable life, legacy, and spirituality of this young woman who thought of herself merely as a “grain of sand” and called herself the Little Flower. Saint Thérèse’s wisdom was a gift of God—a gift that is now available for all of us to cherish.
Through the generous permissions of Librairie Office Central de Lisieux and the Institute of Carmelite Studies, we were able to use exclusive photographs and excerpts of her written works for this course.”
