Rainforests once covered 14% of the earth's land surface; now they cover a mere 6%. Estimates are that the remaining forests could disappear in less than 40 years. Yet approximately 80% of the developed world's diet originates in the tropical rainforests. Some 70% of the plants that are active against cancer cells are found in the rainforest. Preserving the rainforest intact and harvesting its many plants has a greater economic impact than if they were cut down to make grazing land and its timber used.

Foreword by the Dean of York Minster
St Thérèse has become deeply valued and loved by innumerable people both within the Roman Catholic Church and beyond. This is of a piece with the paradox of her whole life. On the surface her life was a withdrawal, a career in obscurity and seemingly without significance in the wider world. But this same Thérèse seems to us now of huge importance to our world,

El  carisma carmelita tiene sus características peculiares
delineadas en la Regla del Carmelo, la cual se hace eco y es espejo del
Evangelio, a la vez que experiencia fundante de los Padres de la Orden.
Por eso es el documento esencial de formación y referencia permanente
para todo carmelita y para el Carmelo en su conjunto. Conocer y
profundizar el  contenido de la Regla es decisivo para comprender la
propia identidad en la Iglesia,  ya  que no se  puede recurrir a la vida y
espiritualidad de un fundador, en el sentido estricto de la palabra.
