Life of St. Therese Stained Glass Windows at Holy Hill

Happy Feast of St. Therese of Lisieux! For her feast I decided to post these pictures I captured during my pilgrimage to the Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians at Holy Hill (that's a mouthful). These windows are located in the Therese Chapel on the first floor of the Basilica.
