The relics of St Therese of Lisieux have travelled as far afield as Brazil, America, Iraq and Israel from their resting place in France. In September 2009 they arrived at the Eurotunnel in Folkestone, Kent for a month-long tour of England and Wales.
The relics of the 19th Century French nun are carried into St Teresa Church in Taunton. St Therese entered the sisterhood aged just 15, but died from tuberculosis in 1897 aged 24.
During her lifetime St Therese emphasised that small acts of faith and kindness were important, rather than great deeds. She was canonised by Pope Pius XI in 1925.
St Therese has been described as the greatest saint of modern times and the relics have attracted thousands of worshippers. In Oxford, hundreds of people queued to see them at the Oratory Church.
In York, nuns greeted the casket containing portions of St Therese's thigh and foot bones outside the Anglican minster. It was the first time the relics had visited a non-Roman Catholic church.
The 18-hour stopover in York attracted hundreds of people. The minster stayed open overnight to welcome pilgrims keen to venerate the relics of the "little flower of Jesus".
The gold-trimmed hardwood casket containing the remains visited 28 locations in England and Wales during the tour including Portsmouth, Birmingham, Cardiff, Liverpool and Manchester.
Perhaps the most unusual stop of the tour was Wormwood Scrubs prison. Here around 100 inmates of the category B London jail venerated the relics and took part in a special Mass.
The relics finish their tour at Westminster Cathedral where they will remain until 15 October 2009. The cathedral said it had ordered 100,000 candles and 50,000 pink roses to meet the demand from the 2,000 pilgrims expected every hour.
Canon Christopher Tuckwell, the administrator at Westminster Cathedral, welcomed the arrival of the relics, describing St Therese as an "inspiration to us all".
