Beatification ceremony of St. Therese’s parents is imminent!
Just ten days before the 150th wedding anniversary of Louis Martin and Marie-Zélie Guerin Martin, St. Therese’s parents, a miracle was formally attributed to them. That miracle fulfills the requirements for their beatification.
The prefect of the Congregation for Saints’ Causes is expected to announce the date for their beatification at the anniversary celebrations set for July 12-13 in Lisieux and Alencon (where the Martins married on July 12, 1858).

Thanks Hubby for the heads up!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
