Biography of St. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face

Carmelite of Lisieux, better known as the Little Flower of Jesus, born at Alencon, France, 2 January, 1873; died at Lisieux 30 September, 1897.

She was the ninth child of saintly parents, Louis and Zelie Martin, both of whom had wished to consecrate their lives to God in the cloister. The vocation denied them was given to their children, five of whom became religious, one to the Visitation Order and four in the Carmelite Convent of Lisieux. Brought up in an atmosphere of faith where every virtue and aspiration were carefully nurtured and developed, her vocation manifested itself when she was still only a child. Educated by the Benedictines, when she was fifteen she applied for permission to enter the Carmelite Convent, and being refused by the superior, went to Rome with her father, as eager to give her to God as she was to give herself, to seek the consent of the Holy Father, Leo XIII, then celebrating his jubilee. He preferred to leave the decision in the hands of the superior, who finally consented and on 9 April, 1888, at the unusual age of fifteen, Therese Martin entered the convent of Lisieux where two of her sisters had preceded her.

The account of the eleven years of her religious life, marked by signal graces and constant growth in holiness, is given by Soeur Therese in her autobiography, written in obedience to her superior and published two years after her death. In 1901 it was translated into English, and in 1912 another translation, the first complete edition of the life of the Servant of God, containing the autobiography, "Letters and Spiritual Counsels", was published. Its success was immediate and it has passed into many editions, spreading far and wide the devotion to this "little" saint of simplicity, and abandonment in God's service, of the perfect accomplishment of small duties.

The fame of her sanctity and the many miracles performed through her intercession caused the introduction of her cause of canonization only seventeen years after her death, 10 Jun, 1914.

Words Written By St. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face

“There is one only thing to do here below: to love Jesus, to win souls for Him so that He may be loved. Let us seize with jealous care every least opportunity of self sacrifice. Let us refuse Him nothing - He does so want our love!” (St. Therese in a letter written by herself to her Sister Celine)

“Love can supply for length of years. Jesus, because He is Eternal, regards not the time but only the love.” (St. Therese in a letter written by herself to Mother Agnes of Jesus)

“Sometimes when I find myself, spiritually, in dryness so great that I cannot produce a single good thought, I recite very slowly one Our Father or one Hail Mary; these prayers alone console me, they suffice, and they nourish my soul.” (St. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face on prayer)

St Therese has been my unspoken bestfriend, known only by and for me,my childhood friend who never let me down..she knows what is right and good for me that she answers my prayers through her in very unexpected ways..always reminding me of Her Little Way.
Today at this very moment the Pilgrim of the Relics of St Therese is here at Jaro Cathedral Iloilo City,I, once again, feel the Holy Presence that always make me cry and tremble for i know its Her Little Way of assuring me everything will be fine. Thank you St Therese of the Child Jesus.. my Dear Little Flower.
