Discover why St. Thérèse of Lisieux is, in the words of Pope Pius X, the “greatest saint of modern times.”

When Thérèse Martin died not yet twenty five-years old in the small town of Lisieux, no one could have predicted that the Catholic Church would honor her as a saint and Doctor of the Church. Having lived a modest, secluded life, Thérèse thought of herself merely as a “grain of sand” and called herself the Little Flower. Despite her obscurity during her lifetime, however, her posthumously published autobiography, The Story of a Soul, became a modern spiritual classic and continues to touch the hearts of the faithful worldwide.

 Praise for Professor Keith J. Egan

“I found Keith Egan’s tapes on Teresa easy to grasp, a summons to further study, and most of all a firm but gentle invitation to deeper prayer. Particularly, I loved his concise yet profound explanation of Teresa’s Prayer of Recollection.”
– Fr. Tracy O'Sullivan, O. Carm., Pastor Emeritus, St. Raphael Parish, Los Angeles

“In our formation classes for new members, we have used Prof. Keith Egan’s DVDs of Come, Pray with Carmel. We have found his lectures perfect for an overview of Carmel’s tradition of prayer. It made us want to look further into the history of Carmel and all of the traditions that have led us to where we are today. His personal comments were insightful as our new member loved what he said about prayer being leisure for God. The study guide also helped her to ask questions after we watched the DVD.”
– Sister Carol Sachse, O.C.D.

  1. Fred Bauer

    Excellent

    I’ve listened twice to the lectures. Dr. Egan does an excellent job of explaining the major themes of Therese’s life, but adds many interesting facts about her sainted parents, their parenting, the life at home, etc. I highly recommend his lectures for anyone in love with this great saint.

  2. Hermit

    Excellent Introduction to Therese

    I had never been interested in Therese before and thought listening to Keith Egan talk about Therese would be the best way of being introduced to her. Now I am excited to read her Story and her correspondence to steep myself in her vision of God and gift to the Church.

    The lectures in this course were just beautiful.

    The lectures in this course were just beautiful. I learned so much about my favorite saint from this course. It was delivered at just the right level.

    His knowledge of Carmel, Carmelite saints, and Carmelite spirituality is immense.

    Regarding St. Therese, I am constantly searching for something new, something I did not know before. I enjoyed listening to Keith Egan. His knowledge of Carmel, Carmelite saints, and Carmelite spirituality is immense. I will certainly order Keith Egan’s CD’s (I listen while driving) in the future.

    Great source of encouragement

    Tending the River Within: It is a great source of encouragement especially when our faith life can use a “new soul lift”.

    Summer Survey: July 2017

    I was ordained a Carmelite priest in ’65 and, as you may suspect, the Little Flower was one of my favorite Carmelite saints then and now. And I’ve known Keith Egan for decades…and really like the way he presents his materials.
