Once when St. Thérèse was a young girl, after her mother had died and the family had moved to Lisieux, she was at mass with her beloved Papa.  The priest began to speak of St. Teresa of Avila and Monsieur Martin leaned over to his youngest daughter and whispered:

Listen carefully, little Queen, he's talking about your Patroness.
