Louis and Zelie Martin; Saints for Matrimony
by Barbara Yoffie
Louis and Zélie Martin are the first married saints to be canonized together. They lived in France in the nineteenth century. Both had hoped to enter the religious life but found it was God’s will to marry and have children. They created a home environment that invited holiness and taught their daughters, including Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, to love God and serve the poor. Their feast day is July 12.
Saints are real-life heroes of faith who inspire us by their virtues to become more like Christ. In the Saints and Me! series, these beautifully illustrated early-reader books tell the real stories of saints that come to life and connect with today’s children aged 4 to 9.
