St. Gianna, a patron for infertile couples

Giving Witness  –  St. Gianna, a patron for infertile couples, honored in Manhattan.

One of the Church’s newer canonized saints was honored in Manhattan this week, with an unusual twist. Among those paying tribute to her was her son.
St. Gianna Beretta Molla may be the first saint ever canonized while her children are still alive. She spent her life in her native Italy as a physician, wife and mother. In 1962, pregnant with her fourth child, she developed a uterine tumor. She refused to have an abortion or hysterectomy, and insisted that if a choice had to be made between herself and the baby, doctors were to save the baby.  Continue reading St. Gianna, a patron for infertile couples
