Quote of the day, 16 September: St. Louis Martin

In 1885 St. Louis Martin accompanied a priest on a pilgrimage to Constantinople, Athens, and Rome. While in Constantinople he wrote a newsy letter on this date to his daughter Marie, praising her for doing an excellent job of managing the household. He also described in some detail the sights that he had seen.

Quote of the day 31 August: Sr. Geneviève, OCD

The notorious criminal, Henri Pranzini was executed on this date, 31 August 1877; St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus called Pranzini "her child". Today we read an excerpt from Céline's testimony at the Diocesan Process of Beatification, where she describes Thérèse's zeal for the salvation of Pranzini's soul.

Quote of the day, 23 August: Céline Martin

We recall the liberation of Lisieux on this date as we share a quote from Céline about her experiences during the summer of 1944: "After fifty years of eremitic life, suddenly to find myself displaced and thrown into the middle of the world, veil raised, is so savage for me, a real martyrdom..."

Quote of the day, 23 May: St. Zélie Martin

When St. Thérèse was still an infant on the farm with her wet nurse Rose, St. Zélie Martin describes one visit she made to the farm to visit little Thérèse. "She let out piercing screams when she didn't see the wet nurse anymore."

Quote of the day, 14 February: St. Zélie Martin

St. Zélie Martin, pregnant with Céline, is tortured with fear that she will lose the pregnancy or the child will die in infancy like her last two babies: "you can't imagine how frightened I am of the future... The best thing to do is to put everything in the hands of God..."
