Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the life of Thérèse's mother, Zélie, who died of breast cancer. She was an inspiration to Thérèse who, within Carmel, had not only the maternal load of training novices but undertook on her own to approach and deal with a few Carmelites who were standoffish or unsociable. Zélie continued posthumously as mother to Thérèse through the stories Thérèse heard and the saved letters she read while writing her first manuscript.

Keywords:   Zélie, Louis, mother, breast cancer, St. Thérèse
