Size: 9 1/2" (24.1cm)
(Theresa, Teresa) [1873-1897], Carmelite nun, who died at 24 years of age. During her life and at the time of her death she was unknown beyond the immediate circle of her family and sisters in religion. The posthumous publication of her memoir, Journal of a Soul, written at the request of her superior, brought spontaneous acclaim of her person and her deep, simple spirituality. St. Therese is a model for those who live in obscurity, their great worth known only to God. She is patron of florists, aviators, foreign missions and of France and Russia. Her feast is October 1.
