Daughter of Anselmo Valle and Cristina Dalbar who both worked in the family’s milliner‘s shop; she had one brother, Vincent. But her mother died when Giulia was four, and she was raised by relatives in Aosta and Donnas in Italy. Educated at Besançon, France by the Sisters of Charity. Her father re-married and moved to Pont Saint Martin; Giulia returned to live with her family, but relations were strained, and she even became estranged from her brother.

Jesus strip me of myself, let me be wrapped in you. Jesus I live for you, and I die for you. Blessed Giulia

Keep a quick pace, without looking behind and concentrate on the one goal: God Alone! To Him the glory, to the others joy, for me to pay the price, never make others suffer. I shall be very strict with myself and full of charity towards the others: love gratuitously offered is the only thing that remains. – Blessed Giulia

Readings

While I have any life left in me, I will continue to teach the catechism. And then, I assure you, I would be very happy to die teaching the catechism. Blessed Giulia

The Sister catechist must be ready, at every moment, to instruct the little ones and the uneducated. She must not count the sacrifices such a ministry demands, indeed she should desire to die while doing it, if this be God‘s will. Blessed Giulia

In advance of her time, she was an apostle of the new evangelization in which she combined apostolic activity with prayer, offered ceaselessly, especially for the conversion of the “indifferent”. This new Blessed encourages us to persevere in faith and never to lose our confidence in God who does all things. Called to be the apostles of modern times, may believers also be inspired by Blessed Julia Salzano “to instill in many creatures the immense charity of Christ”. Pope John Paul II, from his homily during the beatification of Blessed Giulia
