Lord our God,
Through the example
of “the Servant of God, Sister Françoise-Thérèse,”
Léonie Martin, daughter of Blessed Louis and Zélie Martin
and sister of St. Thérèse,
You have given us an understanding
of the mercy and the tenderness of Your Love.
You watched over her fragile health
from the first hours of her life.
You supported her in the difficult times
of her childhood and adolescence.
You called her to the consecrated life,
and You sustained her
on the delicate path of her response.
You inspired her to lead a hidden life,
humble and a gift to your Love,
as a Visitation nun at Caen,
accepting her limitations.
Lord, if such is your will,
Deign to grant us the grace
that we ask of you (…….)
through the intercession of
"the Servant of God, Sister Françoise-Thérèse.”
May she, one day, be counted
among the Venerables of your Church.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Testimonies of graces received should be sent to
