(This 1st edition of The Dove and Rose is on white paper with no pictures. For a copy on cream colored paper with pictures, look for the The Dove and Rose 2nd edition, title ID: 3898212) The Dove and Rose is a prayer and meditation booklet designed to enflame your heart with love for Sts. Joan of Arc and Thérèse of Lisieux. Its purpose is to allow you to open your heart to their saintly, sisterly influence that they might lead you to the center of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in order to perfect your consecration to Mary for the glory of Jesus Christ her Son. It is about going to Jesus through Mary in the friendship and sisterly care of Sts. Joan and Thérèse! S.T. Martin holds an undergraduate degree in Economics from Princeton University and a Master’s Degree in Public and Private Management from Yale University. He is married and the father of one child. Raised a Methodist in the Bible Belt and surrounded with evangelicalism as a youth, Mr. Martin converted to the Catholic Church prior to his marriage in 1985. Touched deeply by the life of St. Thérèse of Lisieux and imbued with a filial love for Mary, he set out on a life-long spiritual journey to "seek first" Christ's Kingdom with Thérèse as his guide. Eventually led to confront his inner most being on that lonely, mystical hill of Calvary, he discovered through Mary's maternal guidance and Thérèse's sisterly care that Jesus had called another mighty saint to walk with him and to protect him through that dark and awful night of self-confrontation that leads us in Christ to true freedom. That saint, a spiritual sister to Thérèse, was Joan of Arc. These prayers, poems, and meditations are designed to help those who also desire to seek that Kingdom in union with Mary and with those whom S.T. Martin likes to call his "saintly sisters," St. Joan and St. Thérèse.
