On this episode, Simone Rizkallah, Director of Program Growth, is joined by Stephanie Burke and Claire Dwyer from the Avila Institute to discuss Chapter 4 from the Endow Study Guide on St. Thérèse of Lisieux.
In this episode, we chat about the sacrifice of following God’s call in our lives in the context of St. Thérèse telling her Father about her Carmelite calling at the extraordinarily young age of 14. Despite the “loss” of his daughter, he does everything he can to help her say yes to her vocation. We share the experience of what risking abandonment to God looks like and the adventure that follows in one’s life with that decision.
"The Divine Call was so strong that had I been forced to pass through flames, I would have done it out of love for Jesus."- St. Thérèse of Lisieux
