Mr. Pietro Molla, Future Saint?


molla_pietroFrom CathNewsUSA today, the news of the passing of Mr. Pietro Molla, husband of St. Gianna Beretta Molla, patroness of pregnant women and a pro-life heroine. Mr. Molla died at the age of 97 following what was called a “saintly, remarkable life”.

The lives of married couples such as Mr. and Mrs. Molla serve as great inspiration for Catholic families who struggle to live out our faith in the midst of our busy lives as parents and family members.  Please join me in praying for the soul of Mr. Molla and for the family who grieves his loss.  We thank him for the role he has played in promoting a culture of life for all.
