Marie du jour 2023, 2 May: St. Louis Martin

I had the joy of receiving communion at the Church of Notre-Dame des Victoires, which is like a little earthly paradise. I also lit a votive candle for the whole family.

We always refer to the website of the Archives of the Carmel of Lisieux for the vast majority of our quotes concerning Saint Thérèse, Saint Zélie, and Saint Louis Martin. If you would like to purchase English translations for the collected works of St. Thérèse, please visit the website of our Discalced Carmelite friars at ICS Publications

Translation from the French text is the blogger’s own work product and may not be reproduced without permission.
