Item description for The Mother of the Little Flower: Zelie Martin (1831-1877) by Celine Martin & Michael Collins...

Overview
Was St. Therese's mother herself a saint? Zelie Martin and her husband Louis were declared Venerableby the Church in 1994 for their Heroic Virtue, and the couple s cause is now progressing toward Beatification. Zelie married at 27, bore 9 children, ran a home business and did a superb job of raising 5 daughters including the greatest saint of modern times. (st. Pius X). She died of breast cancer at 45, but her greatness was recognized by her family and her friends, and is now known to the world. Zelie suffered many of the ordinary burdens of life, yet she was happy, loved her children madly and enjoyed them immensely. This book was written by her daughter Celine, who had access to Zelie s letters and to the reminiscences of her older sisters in the Carmel of Lisieux. It is authentic and inspiring, showing what a tremendous life s work and accomplishment it is to be a truly Catholic mother. Looking at Zelie s picture, one can see her incredible character, integrity, goodness, constancy and love.

More About Celine Martin & Michael Collins


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Celine Martin, also known as Sister Genevieve of the Holy Face, was born in 1869 in France as the seventh daughter of the Martin family. The sister of St. Therese of Lisieux, Celine made known her own call to the religious life just two months after her hand was sought in marriage. Fr. Pichon, her spiritual director, afterwards authorized her desire for a vow of virginity, and she became a Carmelite nun in 1894. She was instrumental in spreading her sister's message by various means, but also found time to write two books of her own: The Mother of the Little Flower and The Father of the Little Flower. Four years after celebrating her Diamond Jubilee, Sister Celine Martin died on February 25, 1959.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Mother of the Little Flower: Zelie Martin (1831-1877)?

Excellent advice for all Mom's  Nov 3, 2006
I love this book. It offers great advice on how to be a great mother and catholic, like Zelie Martin was. I've used some of her teaching ideas for my child too, helping her to learn what a good deed is and encouraging her to do more. You don't get advice like this anymore.
