The Martin Sisters..........September 6

"Touching someone's heart
in just a little way
makes the days go by much brighter"
Sister Mary Ruth, follower of St. Therese of the Child Jesus

Beatification Prayer for Martin Sisters
Oh Eternal Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth, and Giver of Life. Graciously hear my humble prayer. Thank you for the grace you gave your daughters Mother Agnes of Jesus, Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart, Sister Francoise- Therese, and Sister Genevieve of the Holy Face. Deign to grant me, according to your will, the grace of intercession through (the Martin Sisters). (Make Your Request)
I pray that they may soon be numbered among your saints so that they may be glorified by your church here on earth, I humbly pray faithfully in your Name. Amen

(Our Father/Hail Mary/Glory be to the Father)

Thank you Ron

Marie, I think that you have misunderstood. The Martin sisters have not been beatified.

I could be wrong, but I don't even think that they are referred to as "Venerable" yet (recognized for heroic virtues).

Micki has posted a prayer that the Church may find that the sisters are worthy of such titles. Their parents, however, will soon be beatified.

Marie - Glad you enjoy seeing the holy cards of St. Therese's sisters. Thank you John for pointing out that this is a prayer asking for their beatification. Yes, you are also correct in saying that the first step, "venerable" has not been reached yet. It usually takes years and years to complete. But, the first step has been started.

Gina Elizabeth - If you click on the bottom where it says "website for Martin Sisters" it will take you to a page where you can request the cards. If you have any problems please let me know.

I just wanted to let you know that my girls and I were paging through your holy cards today and they just LOVED them! We all picked a couple of our favorites and much discussion ensued. It's wonderful! Thank you for doing this.

They especially liked this one of the Martin sisters. Most of the photos that they've seen are of them younger and not yet nuns, so they enjoyed this.
