Good Deed Beads - St. Therese, the Little Flower used a string of beads to count her sacrifices and acts of love done for God, in that way she was able to advance in perfection daily.

The Ecstacy of Saint Teresa - My favorite of Bernini's work in an out of the way (Cornaro) chapel not too far from the train station in Rome. The look on her face cannot be duplicated in a photo. You have to see it yourself. Bernini was a genius. And very sensual!
