Discover here the brave heroism of young Maria Goretti, recounted in powerful detail: Maria's virtuous life that led to her courageous decision, her family's terrible poverty, her first Holy Communion, her mature acceptance of adult responsibilities, her staggering forgiveness of her murderer, and finally her elevation to sainthood in the presence of her family.
A contemporary classic in the making, young people are especially affected by this memorable narrative in St. Maria Goretti: In Garments All Red. However, this is truly a book for all ages, because anyone will be inspired by this little girl's unshakable purity and mercy, even in the face of brutal violence. The book also includes a compelling collection of portraits and photographs, with a novena and additional prayers to instill further devotion to Maria.
A new foreword is provided by Fr. Carlos Martins, advocate and devotee, who led the nationwide, 40+ city tour of the relics of St. Maria Goretti in 2015.

I had never heard the whole story of Maria. This book told it very well. It was really a brutal attack. The ending shows the power of the grace of God. Highly recommend this book, especially for early teens.
