In the remarkable series Surrendered to Love: The Wisdom of Thérèse of Lisieux, Ralph Martin reveals that it is neither her holiness or popularity that qualified Thérèse to be a Doctor of the Church, but the depth of her doctrine and the simple way she expressed it. As you listen, you'll discover a saint that is also a universal teacher, whose writing makes us truly feel her presence. Like us, she had neither visions nor ecstasies, but teaches profound truths with plain speech and unforgettable stories accessible to all. The author of several books on Catholic spirituality, Ralph Martin is a well-known Professor of Theology and the President of Renewal Ministries. His popular lectures on the teaching of the saints include presentations on Saint John of the Cross, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux and Saint Teresa of Avila. With Surrendered to Love: The Wisdom of Thérèse of Lisieux you'll go beyond popular preconceptions to encounter the real Saint Thérèse. What You'll Learn: How simple acts of self-denial can lead to self-mastery and real penance How to understand Jesus' desire for our love What we really need to be holy How to find joy in the inner recesses of the soul What deep insights God granted Therese in order to reveal the nature of His love What is our true vocation as Christians How Therese could do more good in her hidden, contemplative life than in an active life How divine guidance in life comes from union with God How to find consolation in God's justice as well as His mercy And much more...
