Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus - Carmelite (1873-1898).
Marie Françoise Thérèse Martin, known as the Little Flower of Jesus, was born in 1873 in Normandy, France, of very Christian parents. From childhood Thérèse had manifested a tender piety which her naturally lively temperament could not alter. Before the age of fifteen Thérèse already desired to enter the Carmel of Lisieux. She died in 1897, was beatified in 1923 and canonized in 1925.
