Our Married Saint of the Month series continues with a 20th century model of holiness. St. Gianna Molla, a doctor and mother of four, made a parent’s ultimate sacrifice: giving up her life for the life of her child.
This month our series on married saints features Blessed Peter To Rot, a lay catechist who ministered during the Japanese invasion of Papua New Guinea.
Not every saint exudes great charisma or accomplishes heroic works. Blessed Giuseppe Tovini achieved sanctity by fulfilling the ordinary duties of husband, father and citizen.
This year, as part of Catholic 101, we begin a new series called “Married Saint of the Month.” We’ll feature a man or woman who responded to God’s call to holiness through the vocation of marriage. Our series begins with Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American-born canonized saint.
