My New Best Friends!


The best thing about Catholicism as you wake up this morning?

These guys!

Sts. Louis and Zelie Martin are the newest officially canonized saints of our beloved Church, and they are the first married couple to ever be canonized together.

And right there is one of the coolest things about Catholicism.

Just like that, we have a couple of new best pals. We have a couple of new amazing Catholics to look up to. We have a couple of majorly holy people who are ready to pray for us at a moment's notice.

It isn't that we didn't know about Louis and Zelie Martin before. They are, after all, the amazing parents of Doctor of the Church, and mega Catholic super star, St. Therese of Lisieux, as well as a few other impressively holy women.

But this canonization takes things to a whole new level. 

As a married dude, I am so excited about our newest saints. They are going to be my go to intercessors to reach out to for all things associated with my marriage. They are a prime example of the vocation of marriage, of our mission in this crazy life, and for that I am so grateful to have them aboard .
