The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Little Flower has the stature of being, the most beautiful church in San Antonio. The church is filled with significant works of fine art such as hand carved Stations of the Cross, a hand carved retable above the main altar, marble altars and beautiful stained glass. A rose motif has found its way into most of the fine art. In addition, the Shrine boasts of its possession of a painting of St. Therese which was worked on by her own blood sister, Sr. Celine Martin.
