I'm late in posting my second installment for Marcel's Book Club, on Chapter One of Story of a Soul. But as with everything, God has a reason - or at least makes the most of our infirmities. Because . . . St. Therese has not been idle, even while we speak.
I had wanted to direct readers here to the ICS edition of Story of a Soul in case anyone wanted to buy a copy (or even see what I'm talking about), but it was hard to find one simple link to this one simple book. Amazon.com didn't (somehow) have the book available. Bad amazon!
Well St. Therese wasn't happy with that kettle of fish (and she does have another fish story for us, but it will have to wait). For her book in Fr. Clarke's translation,she didn't want us to wait, and so, to my great surprise and joy, another book-loving (and Story of a Soul needing) Miss Marcel reported that she managed - St. Therese, not my friend - to Make It Happen! Fr. Clarke's ICS Story of a Soul is now available on amazon prime, and when my friend looked it up to confirm it, she found Therese had even dropped the price for us. Good Therese!
So HERE (or by clicking on any of the titles of Story of a Soul in this post) you can find, see, and even buy for a song (a ten dollar song) the John Clarke translation/ICS edition of Story of a Soul. Now! Just like that! In case that is what will float your boat.
As to that second installment on Chapter One, I must wait another day to give at least one reader time to get her copy of the book (which should arrive in her mailbox today). So tomorrow being the last day of January, I think that will be when we see Part II on Chapter One. I can't wait! Meanwhile, enjoy whatever roses our sister sends you, and let's pray with her:
Draw me, we will run!
p.s. Okay, I'll admit it - I just ordered one myself! It came out to $11 with tax, and yeah, that's a third of February's book budget, but how could I refuse her roses while she's standing at the door knocking? Come on in, Therese, we're glad to have you! And bring Marcel too, as you always do these days. Now we're ready for tomorrow, the last day of January and Chapter One . . . see you then!
