Blessed Teresa BraccoMemorial

Profile

Born to Giacomo Bracco and Anna Pera, two humble and devoutly Catholic farmers. A pious child, she early developed a devotion to the Eucharist and the Virgin Mary; as she grew older would go into ecstatic trances while staring at the Blessed Sacrament. Went to Mass daily, and prayed her rosary while doing daily chores. Murdered by a Nazi officer who was trying to rape her.
