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.
