Holy Saturday--but also the Feast of St. Gemma Galgani

I have to post something on St. Gemma, even in the midst of the Triduum, as I long ago decided that if I ever had a second daughter, her name would be Gemma. Since I am in the midst of preparations for Easter after a week of not getting anything done (due to the virus that just ran through the family and a sore ankle), I will just give you a wonderful link for discovering more about this beautiful Saint. I am fortunate enough to own a reliquary that includes a first class relic of hers, as well as those of several other Passionist Saints.

St. Gemma Galgani, pray for us (and in particular, for my own little Gemma)!


  1. Beautiful name and great saint! Will be praying for your little Gemma.

  2. Oh I love, love, LOVE the name Gemma, and I need to read more about St. Gemma. I've only read bits and pieces of her story.

    Thanks for the link!
