St. Maria Goretti Book
By Fr. Godfrey Poage, C.P.
The beautiful, true story of the 11-year-old girl who in 1902 died a martyr to preserve her purity. Her words during the event of her attempted rape and murder expressed, above all, the desire not to commit a sin of impurity and concern for the soul of her attacker. Her murderer remained unrepentant for years after his crime, however, while in prison he had a dream that Maria came to him and offered forgiveness. As a result, he had a conversion experience which transformed him for the rest of his life. He attended her canonization in 1950. This book describes her virtuous life, her love of the Eucharist and more. It is a famous, popular, classic biography! 120pp PB Impr
