Glory of Faith was also released as St. Theresa, The Little Flower, in keeping with its theme and subject matter. The life story of St. Theresa alternates with the modern-day story of one of her most ardent followers, a lowly Parisian seamstress. Taking a liking to the young child of her wealthy employers, the heroine is instrumental in rescuing the boy when he falls victim to kindappers. It is implied that the seamstress' ultimate triumph over diversity is a direct result of her unswerving faith in her patron saint. Jacqueline Francell gives a remarkable performance in the dual role of heroine Marie-Therese and the blessed St. Theresa.
