St. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face - One of St. Teresa of Avila's outstanding daughters is St. Therese of the Child Jesus of Lisieux, France, who left her "Little Way" of spiritual childhood that focuses on total confidence and trust in the love and mercy of God. St. Therese was born January 2, 1873 in the town of Alencon, France. She entered Carmel at the exceptional age of 15 and died nine years later from tuberculosis at the age of 24 on 30th of September 1897. She lived her ordinary life in an extraordinary way. She tried to live every moment in the will of God and to do all for love of Him. Her autobiography, "The Story of a Soul," is a spiritual classic that has universal appeal and inspired its readers to saintly lives. One such life is Mother Teresa of Calcutta who took her name in religion from St. Therese. She was declared the 33rd Doctor of the Church on October 19, 1997.
