On Wednesday, July 10, to honor the feast of Louis and Zelie Martin, Father Jim Kubicki, the national director of the Apostleship of Prayer, a great friend of Therese and a dear friend of mine, spoke about Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin and about the vocation to family prayer on "Inner Life,' a call-in radio show for spiritual direction on Relevant Radio. He spoke sensitively and in depth about the marital spirituality of Louis and Zelie as it applies to us and about the vocation of prayer, and graciously recommended both "Saint Therese of Lisieux: A Gateway" and the book "A Call to a Deeper Love," the letters of Louis and Zelie. Please listen to the show at http://www.relevantradio.com/audios/the-inner-life (select the date July 10). [I regret that this audio appears to have disappeared from the Web site].
