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)!

  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!
