"Under the Veil of the Virgin: The Gradually Developing Relationship of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face to the Blessed Virgin Mary," by Rev. Christopher Armstrong. July 16, 2015

Icon of Our Lady of Mount Carmel by Br. Robert Lentz, O.F.M.

 In honor of the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, I have the honor of presenting a link to Under the Veil of the Virgin: The Gradually Developing Relationship of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face to the Blessed Virgin Mary."  This 1994 doctoral dissertation by Rev. Christopher Armstrong, a significant contribution to studies of St. Therese and Mary in English, was published in 1998 by Marian Library Studies: Vol. 26, Article 3, pp. 103-264 and is now online!

When, in 2012, I was preparing a conference on "Mary in the Life and Spirituality of St. Therese of Lisieux" for the OCDS National Congress, I reached out to Fr. Armstrong, who kindly sent me a copy of his dissertation.  I found it so fruitful that I'm overjoyed that the University of Dayton has now published it online.  Please do not be put off by the words "doctoral dissertation," for it is marvelously readable. I congratulate and thank Fr. Armstrong and the University of Dayton. Enjoy, and deepen your understanding of Therese!
