"Living by Love: At the Heart of the Martin Family," an exposition at St. Jacques Church in Lisieux

The Sanctuaire de Lisieux has produced a beautiful film of the highlights of the 2011 exposition of furnishings, photographs, paintings, objects, and documents associated with the family of St. Therese of Lisieux.  This exhibit will be open to the public until the end of October 2011.  If you are fortunate enough to visit Lisieux before then, do not miss this exhibition.  Otherwise, please enjoy the film.  At 2:07 you will notice a crucifix with a gold plate at its base.  This is the very crucifix that Henri Pranzini, the prisoner for whom St. Therese prayed so fervently in 1887, suddenly kissed on the scaffold as he was about to be executed.
