S. Maria Goretti

SIR,-Many thanks for keeping the name of St. Maria Goretti before us. I was very interested to learn from your columns that Fr. Mauro. C.P„ had written to the Osservatore Romano urging that her feast he extended to the universal Church. This child-martyr was put to death in 1902, not at the age of 15. as you suggest, but before the age of 12. Her canonisation in the presence of her own mother during the Holy Year aroused widespread interest, and in these islands the event has not been forgotten.

Pictures. statues and relics of St. Maria Goretti are to be found in many Irish homes, and at least two towns Glasgow and Preston have churches dedicated to her.

I would like, therefore, to assure the Passionists that they have many supporters in their efforts to make this "St. Agnes of the twentieth century " known and Loved throughout the world.
