The following Text is taken from CATHOLIC ONLINE

Generations of Catholics have admired this young Saint, called her "The Little Flower", and found in her short life more inspiration for their own lives than in volumes by Theologians.

Yet, SaintTherese died when she was twenty-four years old, after having lived as a Cloistered Carmelite Nun for less than ten years. She never went on missions, never founded a Religious Order, never performed great works.

Her only book, published after her death, was a brief edited version of her journal called "Story of a Soul." (Collections of her Letters and restored versions of her journals have been published recently.) But within twenty-eight years of her death, the public demand was so great that she was Canonised.
