Blessed
11 November 1917, Morano (Modena) - 1 December 1972, Sassuolo (Modena)
Liturgical Memory 01 December
Date of beatification 29 April 2007
Religious woman
Diocese Sassuolo
In CA As a beniamine delegate, her religious vocation matured within Catholic Action.
From Cardinal José Saraiva Martins' homily for the beatification

"If there is an immediate sign of recognition of sister Maria Rosa this is surely her smile that became the first charity towards those who lived with her, but which was also translated into very humble and strong human gestures of listening, of patience, of service that demanded a very high price of abnegation and self-giving: 'My heart is under the torch even though I am happy, very, very happy; I began my sanatorium life weeping but I asked the Good Lord to end it singing his mercies'. (...) Blessed Maria Rosa, placed by the Church on the candelabra, invites us to hope and not to let ourselves be nailed down by our limitations and faults, because God leaves nothing unfinished. Let us also pray, as she prayed for herself: 'May the Lord Jesus act in me to build on the rubble of my misery, that masterpiece that He has set for Himself from Eternity. The masterpiece of evangelical perfection, the masterpiece of one's own sanctification."

Saint Paul VI to the Italian Catholic Action, 25 April 1977

«In short: the Italian Catholic Action must
be, we could say, a school of sanctity, in the
wake of so many men and women, young
people and children, who following the
program" prayer, action and sacrifice have
found the way of their generous, and even
heroic, fedelity to the Lord».
