St. Maria Goretti has arrived in the USA for her “Pilgrimage of Mercy,” a tour that will run through 18 states. (See the tour stops and dates here.) In Part I we looked at the reasons, hopes and expectations for the pilgrimage of this youngest canonized saint in the Catholic Church. Now it’s time for a few more fascinating details and insights generally not well known.
Father Carlos Martins, the Director of the tour, shared a number of these additional facts and insights. A member of the Companions of the Cross, an order with the charism and mission of evangelization, he is an expert biographer of St. Maria Goretti.
