April 11 – St. Gemma Galgani: Patron Saint Against Tuberculosis

Saint Gemma Galgani (Patron Saint against Tuberculosis) (Feast Date: April 11) Extract from
I love You Jesus! St Gemma’s love for God : “In ecstasy Gemma says: “…… Oh love, oh infinite love! … See: Your love, oh Lord, Your love penetrates even to my body, with too much fury. When, when will I unite with You, oh Lord, Who with such force of love keeps me in union here on earth? … Do it, do it! … Let me die, and die of love! …..What a beautiful death, oh Lord, to die a victim of love ……a victim for You! Calm down, calm down oh Jesus; if not, Your love will end up burning me to ashes! … Oh love, oh infinite love! …..Oh love of my Jesus! ….Let Your love penetrate my all; from You I want nothing else. My God, my God, I love You!” See PICTURE of Saint Gemma Galgani.
