We present here what is important to study Therese, to go in depth with her work and the genesis of her thinking. As you will discover, the young Carmelite of Lisieux had the genius to make use of the texts, documents, images and objects of her time period. Living with them and nourishing herself with them, she transformed them and was able to create a written work that is valuable for all periods and times.
Marie of the Trinity, Thérèse’s favorite novice, was the first archivist of the Carmel of Lisieux, the first to preserve the saint’s papers, her possessions, her holy cards and testimony. A century later, how happy she must be to see the cupboards open so that all of the Little Flower’s friends can have access! By presenting you with all of these treasures, we move from conservation to conversation.
