Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, born on January 2, 1873, and passing away on September 30, 1897, was a French Carmelite nun known for her profound spirituality and writings. She is often referred to as “The Little Flower of Jesus” due to her simplicity and devotion to Christ. Thérèse entered the Carmelite convent at the young age of 15, desiring to live a life of radical love and self-surrender to God. Her autobiography, “The Story of a Soul,” detailed her “Little Way,” which emphasized the importance of performing small acts of love and kindness in daily life as a path to holiness. Despite her short life, Thérèse’s writings had a profound impact on the Catholic Church and spirituality. She is known for her profound understanding of suffering and her belief that it could be offered up to God as a form of love. Thérèse was canonized as a saint in 1925 and later declared a Doctor of the Church, a rare honor. She remains a beloved figure in the Christian world, admired for her humility, simplicity, and devotion to God.
