ROME, March 6, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) — A Vatican official has announced that the parents of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin, will both be canonized this October, making them the first married couple in the history of the Church to be declared saints at the same time.

Cardinal Angelo Amato, prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, said the couple will be canonized on October 19 during a Mass in the Basilica of St. Therese in Lisieux, France. He was speaking at a meeting organized by Libreria Editrice Vaticana to discuss the topic “Of What Use Are Saints?” with a focus on the importance of sanctity in the family.
