Saint Gianna is a wonderful soul to go to when we desire extra prayers.
Many women who hope to become mothers pray to Saint Gianna and ask for her intercession.
Personally, my husband and I asked for Saint Gianna to help heal our newborn while he was in the NICU for the first 6 weeks of his life. We taped a Saint Gianna holy card to the back of his name sign on his hospital crib, and we believe she prayed for him fervently. He’s now a healthy 7 year old boy preparing to make his First Holy Communion! Praise the Lord! (We received our holy card when we visited the shrine in Warminster, PA)
Our daughter’s name is Jaina. The name Gianna is of Italian and Hebrew origin, and the meaning of Gianna is “God is gracious” and is the feminine of Gianni and Jane, from John. Knowing this, my husband and I have chosen Gianna to be her patron saint. I’m sure she will pick some patron saints of her own as she grows, but for now – we ask Saint Gianna to pray for her!
Perhaps you have a friend who just had a baby girl named her after Saint Gianna;
Or you know a woman praying to become a mother or pregnant and praying for a healthy birth and pregancy;
or you were asked to be a Confirmation Sponsor and the young woman chose Gianna as her Confirmation name – and you want to give a meaningful gift.
Well, I’m here to help.

Inspired by her quote, “Whatever God wants,” this box is dedicated in honor of St. Gianna Beretta Molla, who is the first canonized “working mother.” The patron saint of physicians, mothers, and unborn children, Gianna’s life was an example of true pro-life values and of sacrifice for family, and this box aims to encourage those who receive it to live the same way.

A book about Saint Gianna. This book, Journey of Our Love, is Gianna Emmanuela’s favorite book about here Saint Mom!
Between 1955-1962, Saint Gianna Beretta and her husband Pietro Molla corresponded through a series of letters, collected here. Touching, inspiring, and refreshingly human, their exchanges reflect the everyday experiences and the abounding love of a modern day couple, revealing that the way of holiness can unfold in the midst of this world. From balancing work and family life, to dealing with a long-distance relationship, to parenting, to coping with illness and death, Gianna and Pietro conquered it all. But none of it was accomplished without tremendous trust in each other–and in God.
These three prints from Sweet Little Ones are so clean and simple, love them!
