In June 1914 Pope Pius X signed the Decree for the Introduction of the Cause for Canonization and told a missionary bishop privately that Sr. Therese was “the greatest Saint of modern times”.

  • Here is a letter from the great French, believing Catholic physicist Pierre Duhem (1861-1916) (who always kept in mind Imitation of Christ lib. 1 cap. 3) to his only child, Hélène, whom he affectionately called Toumi:
    Quote from: Pierre Duhem

    Ma Toumi… J'ai fini hier soir [l'autobiographie] de Sœur Thérèse de l'Enfant Jésus. Je suis sous le charme de ce petit livre. Il est merveilleux de voir comme elle vous montre une voie par laquelle, sans être carmélite, sans quitter la carrière où Dieu vous a placé, on pourrait devenir un grand saint. Il y a là, sur l'exercice de la charité, des pensées d'une admirable profondeur. Nous devrions emporter ce petit livre à Cabrespine et la relire sous les châtaigniers de Granel.

    [My Toumi…I finished last evening [the autobiography] of Sister Therese of the Infant Jesus. I am charmed by this little book. It is wonderful to see how she shows us a way by which, without being a Carmelite, without leaving the career where God has placed you, one can become a great saint. There are, regarding the exercise of charity, some thoughts of admirable profundity. We should take this little book to Cabrespine and reread it under the chestnut trees of Granel.]
