St. Maria Goretti

Lord God, you alone can give the grace of innocence and you love those who are chaste. By your grace Saint Maria Goretti, though as yet but a young girl, was able to offer herself in death for your sake. As you crowned her virginity with martyrdom, grant us, at her intercession, constancy in your love. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
