Saint Maria Goretti Doll ~
***This St. Maria Goretti doll will be made after purchase. Please allow up to three weeks for shipment.

This item will resemble the photos essentially but will be somewhat different being that it is hand painted. If you wish to have a photo sent before it is shipped just notify me.***

This is a large peg doll about 3 1/2" inches tall of St. Maria Goretti. She is painted with non-toxic acrylic paint and non toxic sealer. On the back I have painted her name as well as PRAY FOR US.

"Beautiful, pious farm girl, one of six children of Luigi Goretti and Assunta Carlini. In 1896 the family moved to Ferriere di Conca. Soon after, Maria’s father died of malaria, and the family was forced to move onto the Serenelli farm to survive.

In 1902 at age twelve, Maria was attacked by 19-year-old farm-hand Alessandro Serenelli. He tried to rape the girl who fought, yelled that it was a sin, and that he would go to hell. He tried to choke her into submission, then stabbed her fourteen times. She survived in hospital for two days, forgave her attacker, asked God’s forgiveness of him, and died holding a crucifix and medal of Our Lady. Counted as a martyr.

Alessandro admitted that the influence of pornography played a major role in fueling his attempt to rape Maria.

While in prison for his crime, Allessandro had a vision of Maria. He saw a garden where a young girl, dressed in white, gathered lilies. She smiled, came near him, and encouraged him to accept an armful of the lilies. As he took them, each lily transformed into a still white flame. Maria then disappeared. This vision of Maria led to Alessandro’s conversion, and he later testified at her cause for beatification." Saints.SQPN.com
