"St. Therese of Lisieux: Burning with Love," an exposition at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris

The exhibit is made up of 36 photographic panels highlighting the different aspects of love that formed the life of St. Therese.  Translated from the Web site of the Cathedral of Notre Dame: 

The exhibition is designed to be shown in places of solitude and of distress – prisons, hospitals, retreat houses, public places … to show the extraordinary fruitfulness of the life of Thérèse with her double message of hope. The exposition wants to tell us, on the one hand, that Thérèse is a source of graces and of abundant consolation to all who suffer and who call upon her; and, on the other hand, that no life, however poor and limited it may be, is necessarily wasted – that is the life of Thérèse herself, who had always suffered, and who died at the age of 24 years (1873-1897), in the Carmel where she had withdrawn.
