Louis and Zelie Martin to be canonized at October Synod June 18, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin, awesomeness.
I do have great devotion to these two. I cannot think of much better models for Catholic parents. God bless them. Is this canonization being performed because of confirmation of additional miracle(s) attributed to their intercession, I pray? Anyone know the details of the advance of their cause?
Pope Francis has called an ordinary Cardinal consistory to announce new Saints on June 27th. Among the new saints are included the French couple Louis and Zelie Martin, the parents of St. Therese of Lisieux.
The upcoming canonization of the parents of the popular saints will be officially confirmed. Pope Francis will make the Saints during the Synod of Bishops in October, as indicated by Cardinal Angelo Amato, prefect of the Congregation of Saints.
Rumors have it that the Pope has the intention to set up relics of the holy married couple during the upcoming Synod of Bishops in the Synod Hall. A confirmation does not exist for the time being.
Deo Gratias! What a holy family.
We certainly have need of their prayers at this time. Louis and Zelie Martin, please intercede for and protect Catholic families everywhere! Pray for the conversion of all those who are not outside the Church! And pray that souls may once again value holy purity!
