What Are the Miracles That Made Therese a Saint?

Pope Pius XI declared Therese's sainthood on May 17, 1925, after four authenticated miracles of healing. Testimonies of physicians, the church and the individuals who were healed combined to provide the proof necessary to bestow sainthood. Canonization typically takes quite a long time as the four required miracles must occur and be proven, but vetting St. Therese's last two miracles took only two years following approval of the first two miracles.
