French Catholic daily La-Croix reports on today's beatification of Zélie and Louis Martin, the parents of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, and provides a photo and the French text of Cardinal Jose Saraiva Martin's homily from the beatification.
According to La-Croix, between 12,000 and 15,000 people attended today's beatification at Lisieux's basilica. It was the second time in history that a married couple has been beatified. In his homily, Cardinal Saraiva Martin, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, said that in a time of crisis for the family, the family has in the Martin couple a true model. He also offered them as a model for people who face illness and death, as Zélie died of cancer, leaving Louis to live on through the trial of cerebral arteriosclerosis. He said that they teach us to face death, abandoning ourselves to God.
Maureen O'Riordan's blog on St. Thérèse of Lisieux includes a page on the beatification where you can download an English translation of the homily. There you can also find much more about the beatification. A 19 minute video from the beatification is on Daily Vision from the KTO broadcast. The KTO TV website offers an online video on demand of the entire 3-hour Beatification Mass.
