Beautiful Image of St Therese of Lisieux . Italian style Icon with great detail. Also Known as the Little Flower.
On her deathbed in 1897 Saint Therese said: "After my death I will let fall a shower of roses." This shower of roses was graces and miracles she bestowed on those who sought her help, symbolically represented in this St. Therese of Lisieux Icon. By special permission of Pope Leo XIII she was allowed to enter the Carmelite convent at Lisieux at the young age of 15.
In her autobiographical "The Story of a Soul" she describes her "little way" of simplicity and perfection in the doing of small things and discharge of daily duties which has become an inspiration and a pattern of holiness to "ordinary" people. After a painful last illness, this holy nun died at the age of 26, with words of divine love on her lips.
