#138 Holy Disinterest with St. Louis Martin

As Catholics, we look to the example of the lives of the Saints for how we can strive for holiness. On today’s episode, we examine the life of St. Louis Martin, father of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, and his approach to money as he raised five daughters, all of whom entered the convent.

We read passages out of the book “The Father of the Little Flower: Louis Martin” by Celine Martin. While this book is out of print, it may be available at your local library and many online used book sellers including ThriftBooks or your local used bookstore!

To encourage the publisher to continue printing the book, contact TAN Books.
