LEONIE MARTIN: A Difficult Life
A sister of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, Léonie Martin (1863-1941) was one of the five daughters of Zélie and Louis Martin. She was the least gifted of the five Martin sisters, an emotionally disturbed child. After three unsuccessful attempts to enter consecrated religious life, Léonie was finally accepted by the Visitation Order in Caen.
As a Visitation nun she succeeded in conquering a difficult temperament and other personal challenges, so that by the time of her death at seventy-eight years old she was regarded by many as a saint.
She discovered God within herself, in her weakness and suffering, and she became a great disciple of Thérèse's "way of confidence and love. Iin 2015 the cause for her sainthood was officially opened by the Church.
