Louis and Zélie Martin's Bodies are Going to be Exhumed

LISIEUX, France, MAY 8, 2008 ( As the process for the beatification of the parents of St. Thérèse of Lisieux gets closer, the bodies of Louis and Zélie Martin are being exhumed and moved into the crypt of the basilica dedicated to their daughter. The full story can be read here,

People can learn more about these wonderful parents by reading The Father of the Little Flower, The Mother of the Little Flower, and The Story of a Family.

Zélie Martin has been an inspiration to me for many years.
