I was inside Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, and saw this uniquely haunting statue of Saint Therese of Lisieux, one of my favorite saints. She is the darling saint of France. Not far at the other corner is the statue of St. Joan of Arc, the other important female saint of France. What makes St. Therese so special is that she is considered a saint of all-time, but especially engaging is her teaching on the little ways as the path to holiness. This is the path for everyone – that when we do even the smallest and seemingly most insignificant things with great love, we put a smile on God’s face. What a concept!

This is my entry to Where’s My Backpack’s Photo Challenge: Statue
