I wanted to highlight a new blog about St. Gemma Galgani. She was an early 20th century mystic who had the stigmata, endured attacks by the devil, and experienced visits from her guardian angel.
Stop by the St. Gemma Galgani blog and learn more about her.
By the way, this photo of Saint Gemma (from that blog) is completely new to me and really seems to illustrate the closeness with Jesus and inner peace that Gemma experienced.
So far, statues and illustrations of her don't come close to showing her real spiritual power.
