 Our Description

Prepare your heart for true service with these meditations written especially for altar servers. Reflect on the meaning of your calling as it relates to the mysteries of Christ's life, death and resurrection, and as it applies to your own life in a world that is often at odds with the message of Christ's self-sacrificing love.
 

Peter Troiano is 12 years old and lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, with his parents, two brothers and one sister. Peter is home schooled and enjoys reading, writing, piano, and endless hours of fetch with his dog, Pine.

He is blessed to be able to serve at the altar at St. Maria Goretti Church, and with the grace of God, would love to be of service to our Lord as a priest one day.

Profile
Beautiful, pious farm girl, one of six children of Luigi Goretti and Assunta Carlini. In 1896 the family moved to Ferriere di Conca. Soon after, Maria's father died of malaria, and the family was forced to move onto the Serenelli farm to survive.

In 1902 at age twelve, Maria was attacked by 19-year-old farm-hand Alessandro Serenelli. He tried to rape the girl who fought, yelled that it was a sin, and that he would go to hell. He tried to choke her into submission, then stabbed her fourteen times. She survived in hospital for two days, forgave her attacker, asked God's forgiveness of him, and died holding a crucifix and medal of Our Lady. Counted as a martyr.

While in prison for his crime, Allessandro had a vision of Maria. He saw a garden where a young girl, dressed in white, gathered lilies. She smiled, came near him, and encouraged him to accept an armful of the lilies. As he took them, each lily transformed into a still white flame. Maria then disappeared. This vision of Maria led to Alessandro's conversion, and he later testified at her cause for beatification.
