Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face appeared on the battlefields and at the trenches of WWI. Artillery, planes and regiments where named after her. I'm sure the whiny atheist of today that like to complain about crosses in the middle of the desert would find that fine and dandy.

Sancta Teresia a Iesu infante, ora pro nobis
