Blessed Married Couples Watch Over Synod

Saint John Paul II isn't the only one the Church is calling upon for prayers during the Synod on the Family. 

The relics of Blesseds Louis and Zelie Martin, parents of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, and Blesseds Luigi and Maria Beltrame Quattrocchi, beatified by St. John Paul II in 2001, were venerated by Pope Francis during the opening Mass on Sunday, and they are to be on display throughout the duration of the Synod. 

May these and all married couples in heaven look down upon on us with favor, interceding for the Synod and for all families making their way on this earthly pilgrimage.
