your copy of Thérèse: The Story of Saint Thérèse
film, directed by Leonardo Defilippis, tells the story of St. Therese
of Lisieux, a young girl who fell in love with Jesus Christ and demonstrated
a path of spirituality, known as the "Little Way", through the
actions of unconditional love, human compassion, and selfless devotion
Starring Lindsay Younce, this moving true story is told in an inspiring
way that invites the audience to contemplate and apply such spirituality
in their own lives.
the Soundtrack for Thérèse: The Story of Saint Thérèse
Composed entirely by a cloistered Carmelite nun,
the Thérèse musical score features the talents of
various Pacific Northwest musicians under the direction of conductor Vilem
Sokol, who is widely known for his work with the Seattle Youth Symphony
Orchestra. This inspirational score delicately weaves a beautiful melodic
thread through the true story of Thérèse, sewing
together a balance between simple confidence and a sensitive purity, akin
to Saint Thérèse herself.
The Thérèse soundtrack quietly embraces the audience
and draws them in to reflect on the life and spiritual journey of Thérèse
Martin, an ordinary girl who desired to love God and others in a selfless
way. This method of living, simply called the Little Way and
tenderly depicted in the film, formed the foundation for Thérèses
spiritual life and led her to become Saint Thérèse, the
greatest saint of modern times.
