Relics of Family of Saints to visit St. Patricks Cathedral, Armagh  As we look forward to the World Meeting of Families, relics of Saints Louis and Zelie Martin and their daughter St. Therese of Lisieux (The Little Flower) will visit the Cathedral on Sunday 12th August arriving for the 11am  Mass until Monday 13th August.  During that time people will have an opportunity to come and venerate the Relics of the family that embodies what is best in family life and offer a wonderful example of what a family can become.

Prayer for the Family Father in Heaven you called Saints Zelie and Louis Martin to holiness through their married life.  You gave them as Mother and Father to St. Theresa of Lisieux.  Through their intercession, we ask you to bless married couples, bless their children and grandchildren.  Guide us as citizens to make the kind of decisions that will support family life.  We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.   Amen.
