This St. Therese of Lisieux Toddler Shirt is a balance between comfort and durability. This fabric is specially spun to be strong and smooth. Solid colors are 100% cotton. Other colors feature polyester. There are side seams. The collar has ribbed knitting for improved durability. The shoulders are tapped with twill for improved fitting.
Generations of Catholics have admired this young saint, called her the "Little Flower", and found in her short life more inspiration for their own lives than in volumes by theologians.
Yet Therese died when she was 24, after having lived as cloistered Carmelite for less than ten years. She never went on missions, never founded a religious order, never performed great works. The only book of hers, published after her death, was an brief edited version of her journal called "Story of a Soul." (Collections of her letters and restored versions of her journals have been published recently.) But within 28 years of her death, the public demand was so great that she was canonized.
