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.

1.INTRODUCCIÓN
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.

Until a few years ago, very little from our silent monasteries penetrated into the world. It is different today. People talk a lot about Carmel and want to hear something about life behind the high walls. This is chiefly attributable to the great saints of our time who have captivated the entire Catholic world with amazing speed, for instance, St Therese of the Child Jesus.(2) Gertrud von le Fort's novel about Carmel(3) has vigorously directed German intellectual circles to our Order as has her beautiful foreword to the letters of Marie Antoinette de Geuser.(4)
