Discover a modern-day hero of divine love :: Catholic News Agency (CNA)
Beatified in 1994 and canonized in 2004, St. Gianna was held up by Pope John Paul II as a role model for mothers, physicians, and the pro-life cause.
Most of the saints we learn about and love lived a long time ago. As much as we can study their lives and, when available, read their writings, it can be difficult to imagine them as living, breathing human beings who struggled with life. That is one reason why it is so amazing to watch “St. Gianna Beretta Molla: A Modern Day Hero of Divine Love,” a new DVD about a saint who lived in our own time.
