Louis and Zelie Martin will be beatified...

..tomorrow, October 19, 2008!!

The beatification ceremony will be broadcast live on EWTN at 4:00 a.m Eastern Standard Time, and rebroadcast at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. You can also download the Press Kit here.

God Our Father, we praise You for Louis and Zélie Martin, a truly faithful husband and wife, who lived their Christian life in an exemplary way through their duties in life and practice of Gospel teaching. In bringing up a large family, in spite of trials, bereavements and suffering, they showed immense trust in You and obedience to Your will.

Lord deign to manifest Your will in their regard and grant me the favours I implore while praying that the father and mother of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus be presented as models of family life today. Amen.


  1. Finally!! Yeah! I have a friend who named her last baby Zelie, I'll have to tell her, I don't think they have tv!

  2. If they have Internet, they can watch it online through EWTN's Live feed!!! That is what we are hoping to do since we don't have TV either... :)

  3. How wonderful!!! I hope to watch it at the early time. (I most likely will fall asleep)

  4. I was out all day toady and unable to see any of it on EWTN (through computer as I too, don't have tv). Does anyone know where I might be able to see it???

    Miss Mary

  5. YAY! I bet sweet St. Therese is all smiles right now.

  6. wasn't that basilica gorgeous!!?? Outstanding!

    btw, if you're up to it these days, I've tagged you. Go to my place for details.

  7. I really wanted to see it and I missed it!! I bet they will rebroadcast, no? I should go look.

  8. The Basilica WAS gorgeous!! I loved seeing it.

    I've been looking for links to a rebroadcast of it, but haven't been able to find it yet. I'll keep looking and let you all know if I find anything.

    God Bless!
