Bl. Louis and Zelie Martin, Parents of St. Therese

I was fortunate enough to discover in time that today is the feast of these two blessed parents of a saint. Their story is so endearing - in particular, I love the role model Zelie is for us as mothers, wives, teachers and businesswomen! Here is a little biography, although several wonderful books are available for a more complete story.

We ask the intercession of Louis and Zelie for all families, and especially for us parents!


  1. Dear Lynn,

    Thank you for writing about Blessed Zelie and Louis Martin on their second feast. To read more about their lives, beatification, and significance, please visit With all good wishes.

  2. Thank you so much for the veneration and interest in the blessed parents Louis and Zélie!
    I ask them to help us being good parents either -and strong believers!!!
