St Teresa was born in France in 1873.  She was only acknowledged after her death when her diary, “The Story of a Soul” was published.  This book showed her spiritual greatness and the suffering she had endured.  Because she prayed for missioners she has been named the Patroness of the Missions.  She was declared a Doctor of the Church (Teacher) in 1997.
