New for 2009
to The Little Flower - a meditation on The Little Way of St. Thérèse of
Lisieux in words and music. The spoken words on the CD are taken
from the English translation of Saint Thérèse’s autobiography and published
as The Little Way of St. Thérèse of Lisieux by The Catholic Truth Society.
The extracts include in the Saint’s own words, advice which she gave by letter
and by counsel to those who sought her guidance. It is hoped that the
extracts may serve as sign-posts on the Little Way for those who wish to follow
it. The spoken words are interspersed with singing to aid and illuminate
Pope Pius XI wrote of St. Thérèse: ‘We desire earnestly that all the faithful of Christ should render themselves worthy of partaking in the abundant profusion of graces resulting from the intercession of “little Thérèse”. But we desire much more earnestly that all the faithful should study her in order to copy her becoming children themselves, since otherwise they cannot, according to the oracle of the Master, arrive at the Kingdom of Heaven.
If the way of spiritual childhood became general, who does not see how easily would be realised the reformation of human society… We, therefore, adopt as our own the prayer of the new Saint Thérèse with which she ends her invaluable autobiography: “O Jesus, We beseech thee to cast thy glance upon the vast number of little souls, and to choose in this world a legion of little victims worthy of thy love.” Amen.’
The CD begins with the Carmelite hymn to Our Lady "Flos Carmeli" and concludes with a glorious hymn to the saints, "Give me the Wings of Faith".
