I love St. Therese of Lisieux.

I am a born again Christian, as well as a Medieval Historian. My research area is Holy Women of the Later Middle Ages and their responses to death and disease. So I spend a lot of time reading Hagiographies, not just those of “my saints” but of others as well. I am very interested in the development of Hagiography as a genre. I think i have this book, i may have to dig it out (my library is 10k books and growing, lol).
