    CORRECTION! Previously, this pin was mis-identified as Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, or Mother Theresa. The correct information is that this is Marie Françoise Thérèse Martin (1873 -1897) who would become the French Carmelite nun, St. Thérèse de Lisieux. Known as "The Little Flower," she died of tuberculosis at the age of 24. The book, The Story of a Soul, a collection of her autobiographical manuscripts, made her one of the 20th century's best-loved Saints.
