Photo 29 - Saint Therese of Lisieux
Photo no. 29

Photograph taken by Céline in the inner court yard, in the same place as photo 18 with the refectory, not visible, on the left. Thérèse holds in her left hand a parchment on which she has written these words of Teresa of Avila: I would give a thousand lives to save a soul.

Date: after July 3, 1896 because of the book Thérèse holds in her right hand (The mission of Su-Tchuen, received from Fr. Roulland in the speakroom). The Father only learned of his appointment to Su-Tchuen on June 18th. Céline was mistaken then during the Process when she declared she took the photo on March 17th.
