Adelaide Cini

Adelaide CiniProfile

The daughter of the owner of a pasta factory. A pious girl, at age 18 she had a crisis in which she received a marriage proposal while at the same time discerning a call to religious life. Instead of either one, she spent a lifetime as a lay woman working with prostitutes, abandoned girls, and single mothers, even turning her father‘s old factory into a shelter home. Her Cause for Canonization for a life of heroic virtues has opened.
