This beloved saintly duo
are the epitome of a supportive couple. Louis gave up watch-making to help his wife in her more successful lace business, showing both humility, and business sense. They remained faithful to God and each other through the loss of four of their children, and Louis comforted his wife as she succumbed to cancer. Their shared devotion to God, family, and love of nature was passed on to their five surviving daughters, one of whom is St. Therese de Lisieux.
