What we have been promised is greater than we can imagine.

The parents of St. Therese of Lisieux, Sts. Louis and Zelie Martin, are the first married couple to be canonized together. They share a joint feast day – not the day of the death of either one, but instead, their wedding anniversary, July 12.

Join us in praying a novena to Louis and Zelie, for families everywhere. This is also Pope Francis’ intention for July.

Pope’s July intention: For families

O God, help us to journey as families,
and to keep walking together.

What we have been promised is greater than we can imagine.
May we never lose heart because of our limitations,
or ever stop seeking that fullness of love and communion which you hold out before us.

Sts. Louis and Zelie, pray for our families.
Help us to learn from your shining example,
and make us docile to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.
