The Life of St. Gianna Beretta Molla

Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation offers a new official documentary of the life of St. Gianna Beretta Molla (1922-1962), a heroic woman who chose to sacrifice her life out of love for her unborn child. In an age when marriage, virtue and holiness are under assault, the life of Gianna is a striking witness of hope and beauty.

"On April 24, 1994, during the International Year of the Family, Pope John Paul II beatified Gianna Beretta Molla and ten years later, on May 16, 2004, the same Holy Father canonized Gianna Beretta Molla, offering this new lay saint to the Church as a model of virtue, holiness, motherhood, professionalism and devotion. In an age when marriage, family life, virtue and holiness are under assault, the life of Gianna Beretta Molla is a striking witness of hope and beauty. St. Gianna Molla's life and final decision were heroic. She reminds the Church and the world of the necessity of a consistent ethic of life from the earliest moments to the final moments of human life." (Fr.Thomas M. Rosica)
