St. Gianna was a doctor, wife and mother. Her heroic virtue, genuine holiness of life, selflessness, and quiet joy remind all of us that God entrusts us with a personal vocation. During her last pregnancy, St. Gianna had health problems that impacted her and the baby. St. Gianna chose to continue her pregnancy even though it meant that her life was at risk. She gave her life for her child.
“One cannot love without suffering or suffer without loving.” St. Gianna
