Carmelite Saint of the Day

Blessed Louis & Zelie Martin
Holy parents of St. Therese of the Child Jesus
Feast Day: July 12

God of eternal love, You give us Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin,
the parents of St. Therese, as an example of holiness in marriage.
They remained faithful to You and your commandments in all the duties
and trials of life. They desired to raise their children to become saints.

May their prayers and example help Christian family life to blossom in our world today.
If it be your will, grant us the grace we now ask of You through the intercession of
Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin, and let them be counted among the
Saints of the Church. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen!

Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin, pray for us!!!

Peace be with you!
Rosemarie, ocds
