St. Gianna Beretta Molla

St. Gianna, Pray for us.
Feast Day April 28

She was open to life ...

Which is why she married and gave birth ... and gave birth ...  and gave birth.  She loved, and she was open to life.  She wasn't canonized for refusing an abortion, or for dying as a result of foregoing a procedure that could save her life but endanger the child's life, she was canonized for her heroic charity, which preferred the life of her child over her own.

This is what being open to life means.

St. Gianna's holiness is also marked by her devotion to the duties of her state in life - the ordinary way of sanctity for Christians.
