PATH TO SAINTHOOD: Seventeen couples gathered in St Paul’s
Church in Mt Gambier on the eve of All Saints Day to celebrate
wedding anniversaries of 10 to 60 years. During the service, assistant
parish priest Fr Michael Romeo spoke of the lives of St Louis Martin
and St Zelie Guerin who were a married couple (in the 19th century)
canonised by Pope Francis in October. They had nine children,
including five daughters who all became nuns, one of whom is also
a saint – St Therese of Lisieux. Fr Romeo said the married saints
reminded us that the vocation of marriage was a path to reaching
sainthood. “The witness of our married couples this evening is a
strong sign that the lifelong commitment of marriage is possible and
that the permanence of marriage is not only possible, it is beautiful,
joyful and fulfilling,” he said.
