    The Kairos Centre

    St Therese's Little Way to Holiness

    Although she lived an obscure and short life, St Therese of Lisieux has had an enormous impact on Catholic spirituality, so much so, that she was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1997. This retreat will explore how an understanding of the psycho-spiritual experiences of her childhood had a big effect on her novel and influential spirituality. A number of themes will be examined such as separation anxiety, Jansenistic perfectionism, Justification by faith, The little Way, her understanding of holiness etc.
