Zelie and Louis Martin

Maureen shared the following in the comments and I thought that it was such wonderful news that I had to share it as a regular post:
Cardinal Saraiva Martins is to announce the date and place of the beatification ceremony for Ven. Zelie and Louis in France on July 12 or 13. For videos about them and more information about their lives and cause, please see
Thank you, Maureen.


  1. Isn't this such exciting news?!?!

    The beatification is set for Mission Sunday, October 19th.

  2. The most exciting news since the beatification of Louis and Zélie Martin, the parents of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the “Little Flower"--their letters have been published in English! "A Call to a Deeper Love: The Family Correspondence of the Parents of St. Therese of the Child Jesus, 1863-1885" contains 218 letters from Zélie and 16 letters from Louis. These letters invite you into the intimacy of the Martin family in the years before St. Thérèse’s Story of a Soul. Paperback; 464 pages; 32 pages of photographs. $29.95. Learn about the Martin family and order the book at

  3. Dear Maureen,

    Thank you so much for sharing this information. I was giving birth to our last child when Louis and Zelie Martin were beatifed. I will be sure to share this news as a post and buy the book. I look forward to reading it. May God bless you!
