Brief Description of Subject: Was born in Alencon in Normandy, France in 1873, Mari Frances Theresa Martin entered the Carmel of Lisieux Covent in 1889, at the age of fifteen. She was given the name of Sister Theresa of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face. IN 1893 she was named the mistress of novices. In 1896 she had her first attack of tuberculosis which would lead to her death in 1897. In the meantime, she was commanded to write memoirs which were published under the title The story of a Soul. In this work she expounds her doctrine of the little way of spiritual childhood and in a very short time it was known throughout the world. In 1944 she was declared co-patroness of France, together with St. Joan of Arc. She is also co patroness of the foreign missions with St. Francis Xavier.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
