Visit Paris

Along with the life of St. Bernadette, you will be able to take a closer look into the life of St. Theresa of Lisieux (The Little Flower) and her Family. The spread of devotion for her is one of the most impressive religious manifestations of our time. Like St. Teresa of Avila, they both endured severe physical sufferings, both had the capacity for intense religious experience, and both led lives made radiant by the love of Christ. Her parents, Saint Louis and Zelie Martin, became the first married couple that were Canonized.
