Teresa was the youngest of five sisters. She followed her sisters into the Carmelite Order in Lisieux. She joined the convent at the young age of 4. She wrote the The Story of a Soul. Teresa died of tuberculoses at 24. She has a strong following today because of her book, which is refreshingly innocent yet is deep in spiritual wisdom and beauty. This retablo is about five inches tall.
