The father of St. Thérèse de Lisieux was canonized with his wife Zélie in 2015. Throughout his life he had to contend with the heartache of losing 4 of his 9 children, and watch as his wife succumbed to cancer. As a dad, he ensured all his children had a strong faith as they all went on to enter religious life.
