This video shows an October 2008 visit to St. Therese's Carmelite convent in Lisieux,France. It re-opened in May 2008 after remodeling and construction.

One of the interesting things newly on display is the costume of Joan of Arc that Therese wore for the play that she wrote. A pitchfork from the time period was added to the display of the garden tools. Also Therese's habit was displayed in a manner different from before so that one can see where the crucifix from her profession is carried.

St. Therese's hair is now on display at her childhood home, les Buissonets.

The musical instrument being played is a zither which is frequently used in monastic communities.
