Feastday: October 1st
Patroness of  the missions, because of her extraordinary love for the missions, and patron saint of France
Represented  with her most significant attributes: the roses and the crucifix.
St Therese is also called the "Little Flower" by generations of Catholics who admire her. Marie Francoise Therese Martin was born into a Christian household in Alencon, Normundy. Her mother died of breast cancer when Therese was 4 years old. Her older sister became her second mother.  When Pauline entered the Carmelite convent of Lisieux five years later, Therese became ill and people thought she was dying. Therese prayed to Mary and saw her smiling at her, suddenly Therese was cured. At the age of 14 she wanted to enter the Carmelite convent, but the superior of the convent refused to take her because she was too young, and also the bishop declined her request. During a pilgrimage to Rome, St. Therese and her family went for an audience with the Pope. As soon as Therese got near pope Leo XIII, she begged him to let her enter the convent, yet he denied. Though a year later Therese was admitted to the Carmelite convent that her sisters Pauline and Marie had already joined. She knew that she would never be able to accomplish great deeds and work wonders, but she took every little chance to sacrifice. In 1896 she fell ill, however St. Therese tried to endure the great pain remaining always gleeful and smiling. Therese passed away at the age of 24, after having lived as cloistered Carmelite for nine years.
