Figurine comes nicely displayed in a clear fronted box with the the Story of the saint on the outside and a prayer card inside.
St Therese, affectionately called The Little Flower, is one of the most popular of the modern saints. Countless stories exist of the faithful receiving a rose unexpectedly to signal that their prayer to St Therese will be answered.
St Therese promised during her life that she would spend her heaven doing good upon earth, and that she would let a shower of roses fall from heaven, meaning miracles and favors from God.
Only 24 years old when she died as a Carmelite nun in France, she had an accomplished life nonetheless. She sought during her life to find the quickest way to God. What she discovered she published in her book “A Story of a Soul”. She believed that by offering little sacrifices to God, as well as humility, love and daily prayer, one could quickly increase in holiness. She thought that anyone who loved God could become holy.
Because of her great insight, only 28 years after her death she was canonized a saint. Recently, Pope John Paul II named her Doctor of the Church. St Therese is one of only thirty three others in the history of the church to be given this honor.
