A Family of Saints - The Martins of Lisieux Saints Therese, Louis, and Zelie
By Fr. Stephane-Joseph Piat, O.F.M. A Family of Saints is an inspiring true story of St. Therese of Lisieux and the familial bond she shared with her parents, Louis and Zelie. One might wonder how a family from the nineteenth century could be a role model for the “modern family” of today. As this book illustrates, the Martin family suffered from the death of four children, the failure of the family business, and the death of Zelie, at age forty-five, to breast cancer. The family also suffered in watching their father descend into dementia, caused by a series of strokes, with both mental and physical effects. But through the trials of life, the Martin family shows the reader how to overcome suffering through their unwavering faith and confidence in God. A beautiful story of a beautiful family who placed God first in their lives.
