Therese Of Lisieux Life

Saint Thérèse de Lisieux (French: sainte Thérèse de Lisieux), born Marie Françoise Martin (2 January 1873 – 30 September 1897), was a French Catholic Discalced Carmelite nun whose veneration has soared in modern times.

Thérèse is best described as "The Little Flower of Jesus" or simply "The Little Flower" in some cases, because of her simplicity and practicality in her spiritual life.

She is one of the church's most popular saints, along with Saint Francis of Assisi.

In 1888, Pope Pius X declared her "the greatest saint of modern times" and overcoming various obstacles, she became a nun and joined two of her older sisters in the cloistered Carmelite community of Lisieux, Normandy (yet another sister, Céline, later joined the order).

Thérèse died in Carmel at the age of 24, after nine years as a Carmelite priest, serving various positions such as sacristan and assistant, and even being feared by suspicions of God's existence, Thérèse died during a night of faith (a time when she was said to have felt Jesus was absent and when she was still mourning for questions about God's existence). The feast day in the General Roman Calendar was October 31st from 1927 to 1 October, 1969.

Thérèse is well-known around the world, with the Basilica of Lisieux becoming France's second most popular destination of pilgrimage after Lourdes.
