French Roman Catholic nun canonized in 1925. She had her first visionary experience before 13 and entered a convent at 15, taking her final vows on 8 August 1890. Her memoirs are published in the autobiography "Histoire D'Une Ame."
She was the youngest of nine children; five of the girls survived and they all became nuns.
Assigned to pray for Maurice Belliere, Therese responded to the young seminary student and in 21 letters, the two young people shared tenderness and affection, but with a love that focused on the kingdom of God instead of the desires of the world. A model of simplicity, sincerity, patience and devotion, she suffered with TB and died of a pulmonary hemorrhage on 30 September 1897, 7:30PM, Lisieux, France at the age of 24.
