British documentary recording the tour of the relics of St Thérèse of Lisieux. One of the most popular saints of the twentieth century, Thérèse of Lisieux was a French Carmelite nun who died at 24 and became known through her spiritual autobiography 'The Story of a Soul'. The relics of Saint Thérèse have been the subject of a world pilgrimage, prayed before by pilgrims in a number of countries. In autumn 2009 they were taken to England and Wales, where up to a quarter of a million people venerated them. This documentary records the event and includes interviews with the Archbishop of Westminster and the Dean of York.
