Please join in asking Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin to intercede for the cure of Tessa Sale, a baby born in Seattle on January 26th. She developed trouble breathing and was admitted to Seattle Children's Hospital. On Friday, January 30th, the doctors said that they could not save her life. On Monday, February 1, she was taken off the respirator. At one o'clock today little Tessa was still alive. Many people, especially monasteries of Discalced Carmelite nuns in the United States, are praying for her. Please join us in making the prayer below for her cure and for the canonization of Blessed Louis and Zelie. Thank you.
God our Father I thank you for giving us Blessed Louis Martin and Zélie Martin, who, joined in the unity and faithfulness of marriage, gave us testimony of an exemplary Christian life, performing their daily duties according to the spirit of the Gospel. Raising a large family, through trials, mourning, and tribulations, they showed their trust in You and generously adhered to Your will. Lord, let us know Your plans in relation to them, and grant me the grace I am asking, the cure of baby Tessa Sale, in the hope that the father and mother of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus of the Holy Face may soon be included among the Saints of the Church, as an example to the families of our time.
