The Martins: A dysfunctional Family?
The devout (in the proper sense of the word) Martin family, into which Therese, Saint and Doctor of the Church was born in 1873, and of which, there were five vocations to the Religious Life, the parents of whom were beatified just a year ago, has been described as dysfunctional in an article in this week's Tablet.
At least, I suppose, the writer, Joanna Moorhead, didn't label the Martin Family as 'fundamentalist'.
