St. Maria Goretti – One of Youngest Saints Shows Us How to Love and Forgive With a Pure Heart

by Holiness, Saints

Lifeteen presents another excellent and informative video on the life of St. Maria Goretti. Her pure heart and strength to forgive is a lesson for us all. She became a martyr at the young age of 12, which means that she is one of our youngest Saints. However, her wisdom extends far beyond her years. Her passionate love for Christ is an inspiration.

“He loves, He hopes, He waits. Our Lord prefers to wait Himself for the sinner for year rather than keep us waiting an instant.” St. Maria Goretti

St. Maria is the patron Saint for youth and victims of sexual assault. She is a powerful intercessor for purity. Find out more about the Novena to St. Maria Goretti and ask for her help in your life.
