Chapter 8

About This Episode

On this episode, Simone Rizkallah, Director of Program Growth, is joined by Stephanie Burke and Claire Dwyer from the Avila Institute to discuss Chapter 8 from the Endow Study Guide on St. Thérèse of Lisieux. 

Show Notes

In this episode, we chat about the difference between God's kindness and the false form of kindness that is really just sentimentalism which is a spiritually dangerous form of fear. We discuss the persecuted Church and how God is working for the good despite the depth of suffering the Body of Christ experiences. We conclude by discussing that all feminine vocations are various expression of spiritual motherhood and this is the shape of a woman's call to the universal priesthood. We invite you to enter into the dignity of your spiritual daughterhood as a first step to cultivating your destiny as a spiritual mother. Your mission is revealed only in the context of a father-daughter relationship.

Discussion Questions

  1. How have your feelings about Thérèse evolved during the course of our study?
  2. How has the story of your soul changed? How are you different now than when you began?
