the Carmel

Holy Face Infirmary


Infirmary where Thérèse entered life. The background painting, Jesus comforted by an angel during his agony, was there in Thérèse's time. It was a colored canvas pasted on the wall. The curtains and the top of the curtains (named "sky") were dark brown. The window overlooks the garden.


The agony painting in detail - the original was in color. He often comforted Thérèse.


Photo of a sick Carmelite taken in the same room, shortly after Thérèse's death. Thérèse's bed was often placed in this way, facing the window. Behind the open window, we can make out the door to the nurse's cell.
