St. Maria Goretti, Pray For Us

Maria-GorettiToday is the feast day of St. Maria Goretti. During my teen years, I attended a church named for St. Maria Goretti and was married in that church. She is one of my favorite patron saints and a patron saint of, among others, rape victims and young girls. To find out more about St. Maria Goretti, check out this link here.

The movie based on her life is compelling and we watch it every year on her feast day. It’s available on Amazon or through Ignatius Press.

St. Maria Goretti, pray for us and especially pray for the 300 schoolgirls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram in Nigeria last year. We pray that they will be found and brought back to their families.

  1. Hello, Ellen. I hope all is well. I always like visiting your blog, for I learn so much about the saints and Catholicism. Thanks for sharing this about Maria. I’ll have to check out the movie sometime.
