St Therese of Lisieux - Prayer Warrior
Exclusive Restored Photograph

Normally we think of our friend Therese as the epitome of gentleness and love, but there is something wonderful about seeing our favorite Saint with a sword in her hand! It makes us smile. And see her expression! She means business!

The photograph is from her play, Joan of Arc Accomplishing Her Mission, which she wrote while she was in the convent. She is playing Joan, before Joan was canonized, in a performance at the Carmel. She seems to be deep into the part. All the Martins were artistic, so it is no wonder Therese could write and act. And as they say about good actors, not all the blood is ketchup. Whether holding roses or swords, St. Therese of Lisieux is what we call these days a prayer warrior!

The photograph was taken by Céline in the sacristy court yard next to a little statue made of polychrome wood reported to be miraculous, Our Lady of Providence. The date is likely January 21 but could be as late as March 25th, 1895. Note the crown of roses prop which Therese wore in a different scene, in another photograph we have restored.

We hope these photos bring you closer to our Saint and thus closer to her beloved, Jesus. (www.archives-carmel-lisieux.fr)
