SSF232 – St. Benedict and St. Therese: The Little Rule and the Little Way
“Fewer Saints could be more different than Therese 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 honored by popes and monarchs; Therese died young in the obscurity of her provincial convent. Despite their differences, the lives and writings of Benedict and Therese complement one another beautifully. Benedict is like a grandfather in the family of the faith, while Therese is a little child. He represents the wisdom of age; she stands for the wisdom of innocence.” – From the book: Saint Benedict and Saint Therese – The Little Rule and the Little Way by Fr. Dwight Longenecker
