First Married Couple to be Canonized by the Catholic Church 

Icon of the Martin Family

Today, the Catholic Church elevated two new saints and the first married couple to be canonized together.  They are Saints Louis and Zélie Martin, the parents of the “Little Flower” Saint Thérèse of Lisieux.

The Martins had nine children, five of which became religious nuns.  Let’s pray that all married couples strive for sainthood in their lives and relationships.  Saints Louis and Zélie Martin, pray for us.

Saints Louis & Zélie Martin, pray for us!
