  • I love St. Maria Goretti.  Another important point about her is that she was an impoverished, peasant girl with little education.  Yet she understood our Faith better than so many learned men of today.

    If only Pope Francis had a mustard seed of the Faith that this little girl had.......... :sad:

  • I would not hold my breath on St. Mary's waking up.  It will be as in the time of Henry VIII.  The large majority will "go with the flow."  Those who don't will be marginalized, ostracized, and will probably have to leave if they are in any way dependent upon the SSPX structure for income, schooling, housing. Many will stay because they are stuck--dependent upon others, no place to go, no means of going.  Be very careful before passing judgment.
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.

    Yeah. I know. But it's a good catchy title to attract more "clicks"

    St. Maria Goretti was God's gift to modern man at the dawn of
    the age of impurity-gone-rampant.  She brought down enormous
    graces to us all.  Following closely on her heels was World War I
    and then the great patroness of purity Bl. Jacinta of Fatima.  

    The only reason she has not been canonized as well is because
    of the associated Third Secret of Fatima which the present
    regime endeavors to keep under wraps, thus her sainthood is
    delayed, poor child!  She hasn't suffered enough, apparently.

    Between these two young girls the blessings we have received
    can hardly be measured.  One might pause to consider how much
    worse our age of impurity would have been had it not been for
    these holy children.

    St. Maria Goretti is the first saint in the history of the Church
    whose canonization ceremony was attended by:

    ~  her own mother

    ~  the man who murdered her, and whom she forgave

    ~  these two, mother and repentant killer, sitting side by side.


    St. Maria Goretti, pray for us!

  • This 6 part documentary on YouTube is pretty good.  The opening credits has annoying music.
