|This is the shrine
to St. Therese of the Child Jesus (1873-1879).
Also known as Therese of Lisieux and The
Little Flower, St. Therese was canonised by
Pope Pius XI in 1925. |
There are scenes from
the life of St. Therese in the six panels at
either side of the statue. They show the saint at
prayer; at a Eucharistic procession; receiving
Holy Communion; petitioning the Pope to be
allowed enter the Carmelites, though only 15
years; on her sick bed and finally her death.
This shrine is to the right after entering the Cathedral.
