April 6 - Blessed Pierina Morosini
She was from a very poor family and learned to be a seamstress. Pierina worked in a textile plant when she was merely 15 years old. She wanted to dedicate herself completely to God, but she remained with her family to help her mother care for her seven siblings. Pierina was attacked by a man who wanted to rape her and died shortly after. She was 26 years old.
