More Information

Shortly before she died, Thérèse Martin predicted that her “Little Way” to holiness would be an inspiration for countless people. Time has proved Thérèse’s prediction to be true. Since its publication, Story of a Soul has been translated into over fifty languages. It is acknowledged to be one of the great spiritual testimonies of all times and has inspired millions of readers from all walks of life. 

Father John Clarke’s acclaimed translation, first published in 1975 and now accepted as the standard throughout the English-speaking world, is a faithful and unaffected rendering of Thérèse’s own words from the original manuscripts.
