My cousin St. Therese of Lisieux
As I get older, I am sixty, I find myself wanting more & more to confirm the family lineage to St. Therese of Lisieux. My material grandmother, Rosanna Martin Grenier, said that St. Therese was her first cousin. The most that I’ve been able to determine was that her father was Joseph Martin. St. Therese’s father was Louis Martin and Louis Martin had an older brother named Joseph Martin. We do have a family resemblance. We are a family of strong Catholic faith and it would be such an honor to know for sure if we really are related. There is so much to our story that it would be too complicated.
