St. Maria Goretti Comments

Born in Corinaldo, Ancona, Italy, on October 16 1890; her farmworker father moved his family to Ferrier di Conca, near Anzio. Her father died of malaria and her mother had to struggle to feed her children. In 1902 an eighteen-year-old neighbor, Alexander, grabbed her from her steps and tried to rape her. When Maria said that she would rather died than submit, Alexander began stabbing her with a knife. As she lay in the hospital, she ... Continue Reading

    Please St. Maria intercede on behalf of my granddaughter who is being molested by her father. Ask our Dear Lord to protect her and never allow her father to be given custody of her. I have been praying with all of my heart and would ask you to have all of the angels and saints to pray also. Thank you O pure Saint Maria.

    I pray that you St Maria Goretti intercess for Amanda & Raffaele, to bless them and help bring the truth about their innocence. Please intervene and bless the real murderer to confess and attest to their innocence, as Allessandro confessed his sins, and asked for forgiveness. I trust in you Lord and pray that the innocents' burdens of the false conviction be lifted, and that the victim's family have the truth they seek. Only you Lord can do this. Please help Amanda & Raffaele. Praise be to you Lord Jesus Christ. Amen! Thank you!

    I was so young, just a little girl. 6 years old when it began for me. And it went on and on and on and no matter how much I fought, no matter how much I prayed, no matter how many times I tried to make someone believe me in just kept happening! Raped, beaten, enslaved by my own step brother. To find out, years later, when the truth came out that my own mother did not care, in her own words!!! I have been plagued by lust, by shame, by brokeness and guilt ever sense.

    St. Maria Garetti, pray for me! I know I am not a full member of the Church yet, but I am on my way. Help me to learn the path of forgiveness and reconcillation. To let go of vengeance and hatred and this sense of abandonment and loss. Amen

    I was first introduced to Maria Goretti through my teacher in primary school. Over the years I have regretted that Maria Goretti was formed to believe that virginity was more important than her life.

    A truly awe inspiring, glorious, and magnificant saint, one that everyone should use as a rolemodel and adore her courage and love for god. I'm currently in Highschool and i know everything that goes on there, so far i'm succeeding in following her glorious example.
