UNESCO joins the 150th anniversary of the birth of Thérèse of Lisieux

The bells of the Basilica of Lisieux announced good news: Thérèse of Lisieux has been inserted into the 2022/2023 calendar of anniversaries to which UNESCO will join on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Saint Thérèse (1873-2023).

May Saint Thérèse of Lisieux open paths to Christ through the values that UNESCO wants to highlight: culture, science and education. The General Definitory will evaluate “the possibility of proposing to the Order the reading of the saint’s manuscripts over the next six years and of enhancing these anniversaries at the ecclesial level”, according to the Determinations of the last General Chapter.
