the Carmel


The Martin family moved to Les Buissonnets a few months after the death of Zélie Martin on November 15, 1877, thus becoming closer to Uncle Isidore Guérin and his family.

Thérèse lived there until she entered the Carmel on April 9, 1888. It was in these places that the Virgin smiled at her and cured her of her strange illness, but also that she received the grace of Christmas.

After the internment of Louis Martin at the Bon Sauveur in Caen, the lease of the house was terminated at Christmas 1889. Céline and Léonie, then still in the world, went to live with their uncle Isidore rue Paul Banaston.
