A MARTYR FOR OUR TIMES

“I like Theophane Venard even more than Saint Louis de Gonzaga, because the life of Saint Louis de Gonzaga was extraordinary and Theophane Venard’s was quite ordinary…my soul is like his. He is the one who has best lived my way of spiritual childhood.” –St. Therese of Lisieux

AN EXAMPLE FOR US ALL

Theophane Venard’s example, particularly his way of accepting his martyrdom, was a valuable aid to Saint Therese of the Child Jesus, especially his words before martyrdom: “I do not rely on my own strength, but on the strength of Him who defeated the power of Hell and of the world through the Cross.”
