Portrait: Saint Gianna Beretta Molla

From Idle Speculations:

“A few days before the child was due, although trusting as always in Providence, she was ready to give her life in order to save that of her child: “if you must decide between me and the child, do not hesitate: choose the child – I insist on it. Save the baby”.

On the morning of 21 April 1962 Gianna Emanuela was born by Caesarian section. Despite all efforts and treatments to save both of them, on the morning of 28 April, amid unspeakable pain and after repeated exclamations of “Jesus, I love you. Jesus, I love you”, the mother died of septic peritonitis. She was 39 years old.”
