St Maria Goretti, Purity and the Precious Blood of Jesus

"Who is this who comes into heaven? This beautiful one in garments all red, with clothing stained like one who has tread the winepress."
~63rd Chapter of Isaiah. Image HT: St Maria Goretti Church

Two years ago, I blogged about St Maria Goretti, sharing something special about her birthday, connected to her greatest virtue and how her death is tied into the old feast of the Precious Blood of Jesus, this wonderful saint who shed her own blood for love of Jesus.

wow Anne you have been very busy blogging ! I am loving the pictures ! I don't know much about this saint . I read a bit when Jasmine was expecting Evan and I think it is Jasmine somehow must have a special connection with her . Maybe midwifery ? A mum can always hope ;-)
