The parents of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux and eight other children, Saints Louis and Zélie are indelible saints for parents to look up to. They were parents with similar worries and concerns of our own. St. Louis and St. Zélie exemplified what it meant to be a modern Catholic Family. Their motto “God must be served first.” Be inspired by the family of these incredible saints and ask for their intercession often.
Louis and Zélie Martin, the parents of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, are the first spouses who were not martyrs to be canonized as a couple (October 18, 2015). Louis was a watchmaker, Zélie a manufacturer of point d’Alencon lace. Pictured are the five daughters who survived to adulthood: Marie, Pauline, Céline, and Thérèse in the Carmelite habit, and Léonie in the habit of the Visitation. Also pictured are the four children who died young: Marie-Mélanie-Thérèse, Marie-Joseph-Louis, Marie-Joseph-Jean-Baptiste, and Marie-Hélène, who died at the age of five.
