Saint Teresa of Lisieux inspires communion with the saints while saving souls with miracles of love
Saint Teresa of Lisieux, the little flower, is the most famous modern mystic of our time. This dear Carmelite wrote her autobiography, Story of a soul and captivated the hearts of readers for decades. Santa Teresa has always cared for me and I am surprised that it took me so long to acknowledge her presence. Now, I recognize her daily as my friend and spiritual guide.
I chose her as my patron saint because I knew her from her photo that hung in Lilly’s house, where I spent many happy days as a child. It was that beautiful image of the little nun in a black habit holding a crucifix and roses that fascinated me. I am convinced that Santa Teresa chose me and that is why I knew how to choose her as my patron saint when I was confirmed at the age of twelve. I never thought much of her growing up, but when I was in my darkest hour, she came to me. And it was twenty years before I recognized her and understood that she had always been there for me.
In my darkest hour, a friend told me that I had a spirit guide and described her as a dark-haired woman. My friend was psychic and could see this presence with me. I went out and went to my office in a state of utter despair and asked this spirit guide for help. At the time I was holding a pencil over a tablet and to my utter surprise and surprise, that pencil began to move slowly on the paper.
“LOUSY WORLD BETTER LOVE NOW”
Those are the words that automatically appeared on my tablet almost twenty years ago during the darkest period of my life.
How many times had I gotten in trouble with my good intentions? The worst was when I married a sociopath after reading that there is no cure for them and saying to myself: I’ll fix it!
Oh boy, that was the moment I entered my spiritual trial and my long dark night. A six-year period of convulsive fear and loss of all the material items I owned, including my career, my home, my health; and worse than all that was suffering a separation from my beloved daughter. That was my very long dark night. It was in this darkness that I found the help of my unknown spirit guide, Saint Teresa. She guided me without my recognizing her and I came out of that dark place and rose to new spiritual heights. The deepest are the words that I heard from God himself, which are engraved in my heart:
“I am the Father who created you and the Mother who loves you”
And Herself, adding with the voice of my own mother: “Wow, Anne, I’ve always been there for you.”
Ten years later, I was living my Cinderella story with my new husband. It must have been another ten years before I found your book, A story of a soul. I finally recognized her! Towards the end of his book it was written that as he was dying of tuberculosis and growing weak, he put down his heavy pen that he was using to write his story and picked up a pencil. A real pencil!
Like lightning, I finally recognized the spirit guide who had moved my pencil. And of course it brought me a message of love becauselove it was Teresa’s vocation. She made a vow on her deathbed that “I would come down and save souls!”
To this day, my beautiful saint continues to press down on my pencil as I write stories about a soul’s journey. The latter is a mystical achievement as Saint Teresa brings her continuing story of a soul’s journey to the pages of my book on an extraordinary adventure. Anne Urne travels the world with her cousin and describes the wonderful presence and help of the Saints who come to her aid. You will marvel at the spiritual messages passed on to her as she communicates with the saints and learns that, as Saint Teresa always believed, heaven can be found on earth and there can be communion with the saints. A truly inspiring message that only saints can bring and a tribute to the devotion and hard work of the dedicated nuns who are responsible for bringing us the greatest spiritual classics.
Miracles are recorded and saints convey their spiritual messages in this book inspired by the most famous mystical saint of all time. The saints are present, caring for us and eager to help if we seek them out for help and advice. Learn to be aware of their presence and accept their help.
The best surprise of all with this book was the recognition of Mother Agnes, sister of Saint Teresa and editor of her autobiography, Story of a soul. Sister Agnes was probably the most successful editor, publisher, publicist, and marketing guru to ever sell so many millions of her book on Therese; a book that today has been revised to the true version, but that continues to be read by millions of spiritual seekers, more than 100 years since Teresa’s death on September 30, 1897.
With humility and honor, I welcome the addition of this honorable sister and editor and look forward to great things from the books inspired by Saint Teresa.
