At 7:20 p.m. on September 30, 1897, 119 years ago, St. Therese died in a little infirmary on the ground floor of the Carmelite monastery in Lisieux.  In honor  of the anniversary of her death, visit this little room courtesy of the film, and, while there, pray for your special intentions and for the dying, that they may enter into life with Therese.

For years countless pilgrims have longed to pray in the room where St. Therese lived after July 8, 1897 and where she died on September 30, 1897.  Now you can visit it virtually, thanks to the Carmel at Lisieux, in a beautiful film (less than four minutes).  (Remember that it's said that Therese had a sign affixed to the entrance: "Forbidden for sad people to enter.")

While you are in the infirmary, please say a prayer of thanks for the community of the Carmel at Lisieux and for all who helped in this project. May God, who is never outdone in generosity, reward them.
