Patroness of Purity - The Story of St. Maria Goretti
Last edited 25th July 2011

In many of his addresses, Pope John Paul II has noted that the 20th century has been perhaps the bloodiest and most murderous century in the history of mankind, giving the Church the most martyrs in her 2,000-year history. It should be a matter of profound reflection that the 20th century may be said to have begun with the martyrdom in 1902 of a young girl, Maria Goretti, not yet 12 years of age, who did not hesitate to give her life for the virtues of virginity and chastity so cherished by the Catholic Church.

St. Elizabeth of Portugal, Queen and Peacemaker, Celebrated on July 4
Last edited 4th July 2011

On July 4, the Catholic Church celebrates St. Elizabeth of Portugal, a queen who served the poor and helped her country avoid war during the 13th and 14th centuries. Elizabeth of Portugal was named for her great-aunt, St. Elizabeth of Hungary, who was canonized in 1235. Their lives were similar in some important ways: both of them were married at very young ages, they sought to live the precepts of the Gospel despite their status as royalty, and finished their lives as members of the Third Order of St. Francis.
