Publisher's Description

The beautiful, true story of the 12-year-old girl who in 1902 died a martyr to preserve her purity. Describes her virtuous life, poverty, holiness, valiant resistance, heroic and lingering death, conversion of her murderer and canonization in 1950 with her mother, her murderer and over 500,000 present. This is the famous, popular, classic biography! This is a good book to read to children, so they have someone worthwhile to imitate. By having Maria put before them as a model, they will learn to appreciate the virtue of purity. For a child to imitate the saints, he or she must first love them -- which in turn requires knowing them. Get your children acquainted with one of the greatest saints of the twentieth century!

Author Bio

The Rev. Father Godfrey Poage, C.P., was a priest and author of the twentieth century. He began writing in June of 1937 after graduating from the Passionist Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri, and volunteered at a local newspaper. Upon further study at St. Paul's College in Detroit, he composed two popular vocational booklets for children: Follow Me and Follow Him. Besides his various articles for Catholic publications, he also released St. Maria Goretti: In Garments All Red in 1950 through Paluch Publications, Chicago. The work was retypeset and republished by TAN in 1998.
