St. Benedict and St. Thérèse - Book By Dwight Longenecker
The Little Rule and the Little Way Fewer saints could be more different than Thérèse of Lisieux and Benedict of Nursia. One was a teenage girl in 19th century France, the other the 6th 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. Despite their differences, the lives and writings of St Benedict and St Thérèse complement one another beautifully.
