Who is Saint Thérèse of Lisieux?
Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, affectionately known as "The Little Flower", is one of the Catholic Church's most beloved
saints. Although she lived only 24 years (1873-1897), she was gifted with a great intimacy with God, and has touched
countless lives through her autobiography, "The Story of a Soul." Many people have obtained favors through her
intercession, and millions have imitated her "little way" - sanctification through doing small deeds with great love.
She is one of the few saints who has been honored with the title "Doctor of the Church." Because she was a young woman
and lived a seemingly "ordinary" life, Saint Therese is an exceptional role model for girls and a powerful patroness
for the Little Flowers Summer Camp.
