Religious Figure. She was born in Rome to a relatively prosperous and devoutly Christian family. After studying with the Augustinian Sisters, she eventually married a lawyer named Cristoforo Mora. They had four children, two of them who died young. Her husband was physically and mentally abusive to her, and he left their family financially unstable. In 1801, she was miraculously cured of a life-threatening illness and began a life of mysticism. She became known for aiding the poor and sick. She joined the Trinitarian Third Order and devoted her life entirely to Christ and prayed for her husband's conversion. After she died in 1825, her husband not only converted, but became a priest. She was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1994.
