Beata Maria Gabriella Sagheddu
Blessed Maria Gabriella Sagheddu was born in Dorgali, Sardinia, in 1914, into a family of shepherds.
After having been part of the Catholic Action she joined the Trappists of Grottaferrata (Rome) where, in 1939, she sacrificed herself for the Christians unity, at that time in serious crisis.
She has since rest in the Monastery of Vitorchiano (VT).
She was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1983 for Christian unity and in 2018 Pope Francis cited her as an example of giving one's life for the cause of Christian unity in the apostolic exhortation "Gaudete et Exsultate".
The owners of this house, descendants in the maternal line of Maria Gabriella Sagheddu, have decided to build a votive shrine in this place. May his memory be a blessing.
