Learn About St. Therese
Learn about Saint Therese the Little Flower
This area of the website gives an in-depth look at the life and works of St. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face. The Little Flower has touched many lives many times with her "shower of roses." She continually leads us to discover God's love in our lives. This is why we try to imitate her "little way" each day and spread her devotion. Devotees of Therese share a closeness with her that is truly inspiring. Pope Benedict XVI has recently urged everyone to rediscover St. Therese and her autobiography "Story of a Soul". In his weekly general audience on April 6, 2011, the Pope dedicated his catechesis to St. Therese of Lisieux, and speaks of her autobiography as "a wonderful authentic treasure" and invited everyone to read it.
