VIDEO: I discuss St. Thérèse of Lisieux on Ireland’s iCatholic

While preparing to speak about My Peace I Give You: Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints in the London area on January 7 and 8 (see my tour schedule on The Dawn Patrol), I had the opportunity to share my book’s message with the Irish video site Here is a clip where I talk about why St. Thérèse of Lisieux is an important saint for people seeking healing from childhood trauma. Two more clips from the same interview are available on

For more on St. Thérèse and redemptive suffering, see the excerpt from My Peace I Give You posted by Brandon Vogt (who also just named My Peace one of his favorite books of 2012).
