Beautiful Article on Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin (St. Therese's Parents)

My friend Erika Ahern has written a beautiful article about Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin for Columbia Magazine. She writes:

Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin provide a rare and compelling witness to married couples today. Together, they brought nine children into the world, four who died in infancy and five who entered religious life. Through all their struggles and triumphs, Louis and Zelie’s heroic witness to divine providence and to the power of a marriage lived in fidelity offers profound insights into how a man and woman can reach holiness together. 

The whole article is well worth reading: The World is Not Home.
