Fr. Bernard Bro has set forth the aspects of St. Therese’s life, personality and writing that do indeed mark Therese of Lisieux as one of the truly great exponents of Catholic doctrine. What she offers in her life and in her writing, he claims, is "one of the most certain and simplest evangelical shortcuts ever proposed". What we find in her words is a "struggle between darkness and faith, humor and sadness, realism and pretense, maturity and childhood. . .The life, words, and texts of Therese’s are an astonishing freshness, accuracy, immediacy, strength and genius under the ‘banal appearance’."
