Fourteen Flowers of Pardon – The Life and Death of Saint Maria Goretti (A Documentary of the Roman Catholic Church’s Youngest Saint)

Fourteen Flowers of Pardon is the true story of a young virgin’s ultimate act of love. On her deathbed, eleven year old Maria Goretti forgave Alessandro Serenelli, the man who mortally stabbed her because she resisted his attempted rape. Alessandro was sentenced to 30 years in prison for murdering Maria. After 8 years in jail, he had no remorse. But eventually he converted after Maria miraculously appeared to him in a dream. Shot on location in Italy, this moving account takes you on a historic and poignant journey through the life, martyrdom, and canonization of the Roman Catholic Church’s youngest saint, Maria Goretti. Maria Goretti understood the connection between God’s mercy and rejecting the bitterness of vengeance. Through her redemptive suffering and final act of forgiveness, she heroically illustrated the gospel verse, “Pardon and you shall be pardoned.”
