Solemn entry of St. Therese’s relics into Jerusalem
March 18, 2011
Some 2,000 faithful, led by the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, welcomed the relics of St. Therese of Lisieux into Jerusalem in a solemn procession.
“We welcome Little Therese with emotion,” said Patriarch Fouad Twal. “She took the land to her heart,” he said, and “loved all the towns with which she was familiar through the Bible.”
