St Benedict and St Thérèse — The Little Rule and the Little Way


As today is the feast day of St Therese (favourite saint behind St Benedict) I dusted off my copy of St Benedict and St Thérèse — The Little Rule and the Little Way in which the now Fr Longenecker compares the teaching of the two saints. Well worth a look and you can pick it up on Amazon for less than £7.

"Benedict and Therese call us to find ourselves in ordinary life. The little way for beginners lies open before everyone, for the path leads through the real demands of and details of community life. The family, the school, the parish and the workplace can all be 'schools of the Lord's service'"


UPDATE - Fr Longenecker has posted about his book on his blog
