Canonization of Louis and Zelie Martin - and Italian priest Fr. Vincent Grossi and Sister Mary of the Immaculate Conception

From the Manchester, NH, Diocese:

Today [October 18, 2015], Pope Francis will canonize, Louis and Zelie Martin, the parents of St. Therese of Lisieux. They are the first married couple who were not martyrs to be canonized. Their faithful and lifelong witness to being Christian was rooted in relying on God's grace and engaging in the works of mercy.  http://www.catholicnh.org/faith/features/canonization-louis-zelie-martin/


As seen in the image above, Louis and Zelie had several other children, many of whom were called to the religious life. To learn more, go to:
