Feast Day: July 12, Saints Zélie and Louis Martin


PRAYER: God of eternal love, You give us Saints Louis and Zélie Martin, the parents of St. Thérese, as an example of holiness in marriage. They remained faithful to you 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 blossom in our world today.

If it be Your will, grant me the grace I now ask of You, through the intercession of Saints Louis and Zélie Martin, and through Jesus Christ,our Lord. Amen.

  1. July 12 is the feastday of St. Teresa of the Andes, ocd. I have read elsewhere (a parish bulletin) that July 11 is the Martins’ feastday.

  2. Please disregard my comment on July 11 as the Martins’ feastday. All sources (except the bulletin) give the day as July 12. St. Teresa of the Andes’ day is July 13, not the 12th as I misstated.
