Blessed Gianna Beretta Molla

Wife, Mother and Physician - an ideal model for the Sanctity of Life who sacrificed her own life for sake of her child in childbirth

    Today we bring you the 48th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose Blessed Gianna Beretta Molla, a devoted Wife, Mother and Doctor from the Milan region of Italy who lived the Sanctity of Life and offered her very own life for it. It is most appropriate and a Godincidence that her selection falls immediately after Judie Brown, the strong Catholic pro-life leader and two days after "Respect Life Sunday." In fact, as you'll see there is a pattern during the whole week for the Sanctity of Life. She was beatified at the same time as Blessed Sister Faustina Kowalska.

48.    Blessed Gianna Beretta Molla

The secret behind the beads

    In today's editorial, we look at what "victory" means in preparation for the Feast coming up Thursday - Our Lady of the Rosary. The power of prayer is so powerful as Saint Louis Marie de Montfort so eloquently has pointed out and the Rosary remains that secret weapon we need to use today just as Pope Saint Pius V advocated back in 1571 when, against unsurmountable odds, the Rosary was the turning point in producing a necessary victory. Today, faced with unsurmountable odds massed by the promoters of the culture of death, we fall back on the one weapon that will be victorious for the Sanctity of Life. For the editorial, The victory can be ours if we take up the Rosary and pray! see CATHOLIC PewPOINT

The victory can be ours if we take up the Rosary and pray!

'But the Lord answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, thou art anxious and troubled about many things; and yet only one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the best part, and it will not be taken away from her."

Luke 10: 41-42
