Evan on February 23, 2015
Host Frances Harry has the joy of interviewing Maureen O’Riordan of Philadelphia on the parents of St. Therese, the Little Flower: Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin.  She has studied, imitated,  and promoted the life and spirituality of St. Therese and her family over the past 30 years.  What can we learn from St. Therese’s parents, Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin to help us in our lives today?  What were they like as husband and wife?  What were they like as parents?  How did they relate to people around them?  What can we learn from them about relationships and growing in the spiritual life today?  How did they did manage the pressures of family life, work life, illnesses and tragedies, and other special challenges? Why are they “witnesses of hope” for us now?
