It was in the home of Joachim and Ann where the Virgin Mary received her training to be the Mother of God. Thus, devotion to Ann and Joachim is an extension of the affection Christians have always professed toward our Blessed Mother. We, too, owe a debt of gratitude to our parents for their help in our Christian formation.

Led away as if they were criminals, the Passionist religious left the church. No one thought about running from death. All remained faithful to the Lord.

Mary Magdalen had stood with Mary at the foot of the Cross on that brutal Good Friday afternoon and had been by the side of Mary during these difficult hours. On Easter morning, she went with the other women to the tomb and it was there, in the garden near the tomb, that Jesus appeared to her. It was she who brought the news of the Resurrection to the Apostles.

St. Maria Goretti was born of a poor peasant family in Corinaldi, Italy, in 1890. She was well known to her neighbors for her cheerfulness and piety. When she was twelve, a vicious stranger burst upon her, bent on raping her and destroying her childlike purity. With splendid courage she surrendered herself to God and preferred to die rather than to lose her virginity.
