St. Therese of Lisieux meets Pope Leo XIII

"St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy FaceWhen Therese of Lisieux was 14, she desperately wanted to become a Carmelite nun, but the superior at the local monastery wouldn't allow it since Therese was so young. So Therese traveled to Rome with her father to directly ask Pope Leo XIII if she could join the monastery. Leo said "Well, my child, do what the superiors decide." Shortly after this, she was allowed to join the monastery by her bishop. This is part of a larger window dedicated to Therese of Lisieux in St. Thomas More Catholic Church in St. Paul, MN. "
