By Sts. Zelie and Louis Martin
The letters of Sts. Zelie and Louis Martin reproduced in these pages provide us with a treasury of rich insights into the lives and spirituality of St. Therese's parents. We are given a glimpse into lives of these two saintly, and in many ways, very ordinary people. They greatly enrich our understanding of this charismatic couple who radiated holiness and brought to life the greatest saint of the modern age. Their letters show how sainthood is a family project of parents and children immersed in the God of love and call us to a deeper love for God, for each other and for the poor in our midst and invite us to accept whatever the will of God may be for us in our lives.
This collection features two 16-page color sections of previously unpublished family photographs from this time.
