About the Talk

Saints Zelie and Louis Martin are the parents of St Therese of Lisieux, they are also the first married couple to be canonised together. Though their lives were not easy facing many tragedies including losing four children in infancy, the lived lives of great faith, a faith they passed on to the their five daughters. Their faith and personality most definitely helped shape the character of their daughter St Therese who through her writings has helped millions of people grow close to Christ in the little way of simple spirituality lived. In this talk Canon John Udris, a internationally recognised St Therese scholar, will explore the lives of these saintly parents and what we can learn from them to help and encourage us as parents seeking to grow in faith and help our children grow too.
