The process of the blessed Louis and Zélie

The parents of St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus, Louis Martin (1823-94) and Zélie Guérin (1831-77), were declared “Venerable” by Pope John Paul II on 26 March 1994 and beatified in Lisieux on October 19, 2008.

Prayer through the intercession of the Parents

Prayer to request that Blessed Louis and Zélie Martin may be canonized by the Church and to obtain graces through their intercession.

Since my young son entered to the Faculty of Science, I have never ceased to entrust him it to Saint Thérèse and to Mr. and to Mrs. Martin, asking them always to take care of him, especially at the time of the examinations. I have never doubted of their help and they always grant my request. (...)
