Saint Therese of Lisieux (1873 – 1897) was a French Catholic Carmelite nun, is recognized as a Doctor of the Church, one of only three women to receive that honor. She is also known as the Little Flower of Jesus and is generally depicted with a crucifix entwined with roses wearing the brown dress of the Carmelites. She expressed her faith through little deeds done in the service of God, known as the Little Way. She is also known for her extremely popular spiritual memoir, The Story of a Soul. Saint Therese of Lisieux is the patron saint of people with AIDS, aviators, florists, illnes and missions. In 1944, Pope Pius XII named her co-patroness of France alongside St. Joan of Arc. In August 2008, both of her parents, the Venerable Zelie and Louis Martin, were approved for beatification by Pope Benedict XVI.
