Photo 35 - Saint Therese of Lisieux
Photo no. 35

Photograph taken by Céline, in the meadow outside the convent, alongside the alley of chestnut trees to the right of the photo. Behind, the wall separating the convent from the Fleuriot property is visible. The sisters have pulled up their dresses as they did for manual labor.

Date: June 1896, probably before the 21st and the same day as photos 33 and 34 because of the lily branch that Saint John the Baptist holds, which is the same as in the preceding photo. Haymaking took place the third week in June.

From left to right: Thérèse of Saint Augustin, Marie of Jesus, Saint John of the Cross, Marie of Saint Joseph, Saint Vincent de Paul and Mary Magdalene behind her, Geneviève of the Holy Face (Céline), Marie of the Trinity, Agnès of Jesus (Pauline) and at their sides Marie of the Eucharist (Marie Guérin). Standing behind Pauline we see a rather blurry Thérèse, Martha of Jesus, Marie of the Sacred Heart, Marie de Gonzague, Saint John the Baptist and Marie of the Angels.
