God of eternal love, You give us Blessed Louis and Zélie Martin, the parents of St. Thérèse, as an example of holiness in marriage.
They remained faithful to You and Your commandments in all the duties and trials of life.
They desired to raise their children to become saints.
May their prayers and example help Christian family life to blossom in our world today.
If it be your will, grant us the grace we now ask of You, through the intercession of Blessed Louis and Zélie Martin, and let them be counted among the Saints in your Church.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
