Mother of the Little Flower
On October 18, 2015, Zélie Martin and her husband Louis were declared saints of the Church, the first married couple to be canonized together. Zélie married at 27, bore 9 children, ran a home business and did a superb job of raising 5 daughters including the greatest saint of modern times. (St. Pius X). She died of breast cancer at 45, but her greatness was recognized by her family and her friends, and is now known to the world. Zélie suffered many of the ordinary burdens of life, yet she was happy, loved her children madly and enjoyed them immensely. This book was written by her daughter Celine, who had access to Zélie s letters and to the reminiscences of her older sisters in the Carmel of Lisieux. It is authentic and inspiring, showing what a tremendous life s work and accomplishment it is to be a truly Catholic mother. Looking at Zélie s picture, one can see her incredible character, integrity, goodness, constancy and love.
