The Autobiography of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux; a Carmelite sister.
I must tell you that after my Mother’s death my naturally happy disposition completely changed. Instead of being lively and demonstrative as I had been, I became timid, shy and extremely sensitive. If Our Lord had not lavished so much love and sunshine on His Little Flower, she never could have become acclimatized to this earth.
Soon after my Mother’s death, Papa made up his mind to leave Alençon and live at Lisieux so that we might be near our uncle, my Mother’s brother. I remember the journey quite well and our arrival in the evening at my uncle’s house. I can still see my little cousins, Jeanne and Maria, waiting on the doorstep with my aunt. How touching was the affection all these dear ones showed us! The next day they took us to our new home; Les Buissonnets, 7 situated in a quiet part of the town. I was charmed with the house my Father had taken; the large upper window from which there was an extensive view, the flower garden in front and the kitchen garden at the back—all these seemed delightfully new to my childish mind and this happy home became the scene of many joys and of family gatherings which I can never forget.
Every afternoon I went out for a walk with Papa and we paid a visit to the Blessed Sacrament in one or other of the Churches. It was in this way that I first saw the Chapel of the Carmel,
“Look, little Queen,” Papa said to me, “behind that big grating there are holy nuns who are always praying to Almighty God.”
Little did I think that nine years later I should be amongst them, that in this blessed Carmel I should receive so many graces.
