Saint Gemma Galgani - Virgin (1878-1903).
Saint Gemma Galgani was born at Camigliano in Tuscany, Italy, in 1878. Her mother died when she was seven years old, and from that time on her life was one of continuous suffering. Her afflictions were caused by ill-health, by the poverty into which her family fell. She earnestly desired to be a Passionist nun, but was not accepted because of her physical infirmities.
