St. Therese and her family, the Martin family, provide food for thought regarding the interior life and how it can develop within marriages and families. St. Therese’s formation allows us to reflect on how children should be raised to practice and understand the interior life. At the same time, her parents provide an example for living devoutly in the laity. St. Therese’s experience, furthermore, shows the interior life at a more advanced stage, and we see her development from the prayer of a child to the prayer of a spiritual child, aided by her family.
