So, I wrote this yesterday and wasn’t going to share, but then I just couldn’t handle how much this saint’s day triggered me yesterday (I had a hard time with it last year, too, and this day last year). Thankfully, today’s not as bad as I thought it would be. Yesterday was much worse. Thank God I could go to work and get out of my own head yesterday. A reverse cherita.
I love God and love my Church, and Maria did show a great example of forgiveness, but she bothers me. A lot.
Is safeguarding "purity" so important That a woman should prefer to be Dead, rather than a rape victim? God forgive my impiety I'm Upset that that's considered saintly. If Maria forgave Alessandro,* she'd forgive me. *her attacker
One thought on “Saint Maria Goretti”
I am doing some spiritual reading at present and beginning to understand the reason St. Maria is a Saint; she was living on a higher spiritual level than the average young girl during her era of
lifetime therefore; it does not mean that if she gave in she would have been damned, God knows our weakness, but she was above giving in, she had taken a vow of virginity, which helped her choose death rather than break her vow.
