The Pope recognizes the miracle needed to canonize the parents of St. Therese of Lisieux

2015-03-18

Pope Francis has recognized the second miracle attributed to the parents of St. Therese of Lisieux, Louis and Marie-Azélie.

They will be proclaimed saints at a ceremony during the Synod of Families in October.

The miracle is the healing of Carmen, a girl from Valencia, Spain. She is now six years old. Carmen was born prematurely with severe complications, and she suffered a brain hemorrhage that affected her lungs and heart. The doctors said they could not help her. Her parents prayed to St. Therese's parents to intercede. Carmen survived and remains healthy today.

The couple was beatified after they also helped cure another newborn, Peter. 

Louis Martin and Marie-Azélie Guérin married in 1858 and had 9 children. Four died in infancy. The five who survived became religious. The beatification took place in Lisieux in October 2008. They will be the first married couple to be canonized together.
