Very many people around the world have received graces by the prayers of St. Therese of the Child Jesus, called "the greatest saint of modern times" by Pope Pius X. In 1997 she was declared a Doctor of the Church and her "Little Way of Spiritual Childhood" is a doctrine for the spiritual life that can be lived by anyone to achieve holiness.
This definitive film, made in honor of the 100th anniversary of her death (1897), tells the story of the life of Therese Martin. Filmed on location in France by the acclaimed French producer Jean Daniel Jolly Monge, it gives her whole story through interviews, dramatizations, examination of her writings and extensive visits to her home and inside the Carmel at Lisieux. Expert commentary is provided by Bishop Guy Gaucher, the Bishop of Lisieux.
