About St Therese of Lisieux
Therese de Lisieux was born Marie-Francoise-Therese Martin on 2 January 1873. She died when she was just 24 years old on 30 September 1897, after having lived as a cloistered Carmelite for less than ten years. Saint Therese of Lisieux or Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face, was canonised and recognised as a Doctor of the Church, one of only three women to receive that honour. She is also known as "The Little Flower of Jesus." St. Therese of Lisieux has become a truly inspirational figure for people across the world. Generations of Catholics have admired this young saint and found in her short life more inspiration than in the many volumes by worthy theologians. She never went on missions, never founded a religious order and never performed great works. The only book of hers, published after her death, was created from her journal called "Story of a Soul." In this edition, collections of her letters, poems and prayers have also been included. Despite her humble existence, within 28 years of her death, the public demand was so great that she was canonized by Pope Pius XI and in 1997 Pope John Paul II promoted her to Doctor of the Church."
