Audrey Ahern is an actress now playing the role of St. Therese of Lisieux in St. Luke Productions touring one -woman live drama, Therese, The Story of a Soul. Audrey talks with host Peggy Normandin about how she prepared for this daunting role, and what she learned about the saint we call “the little flower.”
Audrey Ahern and Peggy continue their conversation about one of the Church’s most beloved saints and what Audrey hopes to convey in her theatrical portrayal of St. Therese. Listeners are invited to call in with their questions for Audrey.
In Chatting with Catholics, Peggy takes her microphone to a classroom of fourth graders in a Catholic elementary school in Portland, Oregon, and asks the young students “do you believe you can be a saint?”
