Thérèse of Lisieux visits Sta. Urzula Parish in Binangonan

I AM LUCKY AND BLESSED TO SEE ST. THERESE OF CHILD JESUS IN BINANGONAN



She felt an early call to religious life and overcoming various obstacles became a nun at 15. After nine years as a Carmelite religious, the last two spent in a night of faith , she died of tuberculosis at the age of 24. The impact of her posthumous publications, including her spiritual autobiography The Story of a Soul, made her one of the greatest saints of the 20th century. Considered by Pius XI as the star of his pontificate, she was quickly beatified and canonized and then declared co-patron saint of missions with Francis Xavier in 1927 and in 1944, co-patroness of France with St. Joan of Arc. Devotion to Saint Thérèse has developed around the world.

The depth and novelty of her spirituality, called the theology of the little way has inspired many believers. In 1997 Pope John Paul II made her the 33rd doctor of the Church, recognizing her exemplary writings, and life. The Basilica of Lisieux is the second greatest place of pilgrimage in France after Lourdes.
