Louis and Zelie Martin lived in the small Norman town of Alencon, France, Where their ninth child Therese was born on January 2, 1873. Four years later the Martin family moved to Les Buissonnets, a country villa outside Lisieux. Therese’ sister Pauline entered the Carmelite Monastery of Lisieux in 1882, and in 1886 a second sister, Marie, entered the same convent. On April 9, 1888, the ﬁfteen-year-old Therese entered the Carmel of Lisieux. For the remaining nine years of her life, Therese remained with her sisters at the Carmelite Monastery. In 1895 Therese started writing the story of her life. After her death on September 30, 1897 the autobiography Therese had written was published by the Carmel of Lisieux. The book soon became world famous as a masterpiece in spiritual literature. Therese was declared a saint by Pope Pius XI on May 17, 1925 and her feast day is kept on October 1.

Saint Thomas Aquinas
G.K. Chesterton's brilliant sketch of the life and thought of Thomas Aquinas is as relevant today as when it was published in 1933. Then, it earned the praise of such distinguished writers as Etienne Gilson, Jacques Maritain, and Anton Pegis as the best book ever written on the great thirteenth-century Dominican. Today, Chesteron's classic stands poised to reveal Thomas to a new generation.
