Chiara Luce Badano

Chiara Luce Badano, an 18-year-old-girl, will be beatified in Rome, Italy, on Saturday, Sept. 25th, 2010 at the Shrine of Our Lady of Divine Love.

The beatification will be broadcast live on EWTN . She is called "a saint of our times" by the local bishop in Italy who knew her personally. He sees this 18-year-old, who died after a three-year struggle with bone cancer, as a guiding light ("Luce") especially for young people. Asked if she talked about spirituality with her high school friends, she said, "Talking about God doesn't count for much. I have to give Him."

Chiara Luce's recognized miracle was the healing of a little boy dying from meningitis last year. You can read her story in the book "Chiara Luce: A Life Lived to the Full," by Michele Zanzucchi
