Saints Louis and Azelie Martin, Pray For Us and Protect the Synod
Yesterday, Pope Francis canonized the parents of St. Therese of Lisieux, Louis and Azelie Martin. This is the first time a married couple has been canonized at the same time. There have of course been other married couples who are saints, but they were canonized at different times.
A couple of months ago, I wrote an article for One Peter Five in which I pointed out that canonizing this wonderful couple and model of Catholic marriage should have been done prior to the Synod on the Family, instead of in its final week. I also give an in-depth look at the lives of the Martin family and how they truly radiate the glow of Catholic holiness.
Please, give the article a read here.
Sts Louis and Azelie Martin, Ora pro nobis.
