In January of 2008 I found a prayer card with a novena to St Therese on it while cleaning up some stuff one day. I thought it would be fun to pray because I had heard that sometimes people receive roses and I wanted to see if that would happen to me too, so I prayed the novena. I got roses and on my birthday no less 😀 It was also the first time I had ever said a novena. I also seemed to have gained the interest of St Therese who keeps trying to make herself known to me for almost the past two years now. I keep encountering her in quotes from her mostly but also by seeing her picture and statue. Later in 2008 I started to read a free copy of her book Story of a Soul on Project Gutenberg which you can read here but gave up since it`s not very easy to read that much at the computer. A couple of months later while visiting my family I found a copy on my Mom`s bookshelf and so read the entire book very comfortably.
Her relics have toured the world but have never been to Japan and currently they are in England for a month. If they ever do come here, and Im still here, I will definitely go say hi. I also found out that another favorite Catholic of mine, and likely future saint, Archbishop Fulton Sheen`s talks about her have been compiled into a book see here
I found this video which shows the public areas of her convent as well as some of her personal items.
