The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Little Flower also called Our Lady of Mount Carmel and St. Thérèse Church is a historic Roman Catholic church, located in San Antonio, Texas, in the United States.

  • Our high school class of 1974 attended mass here for our annual Christmas reunion. This is a beautiful basilica built in 1925; it is one of the gems of San Antonio. You get a sense of spirituality...

  • This is most definitely the best place to be if you want to feel the presence of Jesus I love going to the church not only for confession but also just to pay a visit,love the old communion rails the way all churches used to be like when the priest was the only one to give communion which I miss in all churches I always felt a closeness when I would receive communion given by a priest to God I also like that they have big christ crucified on the right side of the church where you can kneel before Christ and feel that closeness once again .
  • Always a beautiful experience when I attend any mass or service...🙏🏻🙌🏻❤ the structure is amazing inside and out.. the altar is so detailed and different as well... #TRUSTINHIM #GODISGRAND
