Feast of St. Therese of Lisieux - Doctor of the Church

Jesus needs neither books nor Doctors of Divinity in order to instruct souls; He, the Doctor of Doctors, He teaches without noise of words.

Those are the words of  woman declared a "Doctor of the Church" in 1997 by Pope John Paul II the Apostolic Letter Divini Amoris Scientia ("The Science of Divine Love").  Indeed, it is in silence that we hear the voice of God in our hearts. 

Today is the feast of St. Therese of Lisieux.  Here is a great resource at EWTN with bibliography, quotes, and even a collection of audio in the archive where she was discussed. 

There are some good leads at Wikipedia too.
