Yesterday, Blessed Anna Rosa Gattorno of Italy (born 1831) was the Saint of the Day on my Laudate App. The description of her life started with this quote from her:

“My love, what can I do to make the whole world love you? … Make use once again of this wretched instrument to renew the faith and the conversion of sinners.”

Such devotion always amazes and inspires me. Blessed Anna Rosa was also a mother, so that amazes me even more :), that she could focus so fully on her love despite the hectic pace of life as a mom. Her dedication also reminds me of my patron saint St. Therese of Lisieux. I can only aspire to such complete and utter devotion.
