Photos of the funeral of Bishop Guy Gaucher, who rests near the first tomb of Therese


 I thank the Carmelites of the Paris province for these beautiful photos of  the funeral of their brother, Carmelite friar and Bishop Guy Gaucher, "Therese's bishop."  His funeral Mass took place on Thursday, July 10 at 3:00 p.m. in the Basilica of St. Therese at Lisieux, and he was laid to rest in the town cemetery, near the tomb where the body of St. Therese rested from the day of her own funeral in 1897 until it returned to Carmel in 1923.  In communion of thanksgiving and in prayer that we might continue the mission he shared with her, "to love Jesus and to make Him loved."  "All is grace."
