Historically Famous Terrys
Therese was a young and simple nineteenthcentury Frenchwoman, who died of tuberculosis at the age of 24. Opinions about her differ: to many thousands, her autobiography, Histoire d'une arne, is a work of spiritual genius in its simplicity, humility and ordinariness. (She is patron of missionaries and pilots because she would offer to God, on their behalf, the few painful steps she was able to make each day during her illness.) Her powers of intercession were and are believed to be miraculous, and the shrine at Lisieux is one of the largest in the Roman Catholic Church. To others, the 'Little Flower' - as she liked to call herself - was a nauseating product of a rather febrile kind of French spirituality. St Teresa and St Therese speak to different kinds of people, but they both experienced the love of God intensely, and could communicate the depths of their experience to others - that, not their brand of spirituality, is what matters.
