St. Therese of Lisieux

Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, also known as "The Little Flower," was a French Carmelite nun known for her simple and humble approach to spirituality, which she called "the Little Way." Her autobiography, "Story of a Soul," has inspired many with its message of doing small things with great love. Thérèse's deep faith and love for God, despite her short life, have made her one of the most beloved saints in the Catholic Church. She was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1997.
