‘In memory of a mother’
Catholic World News - August 04, 2014
Pope Francis recently offered Mass in Domus Sanctae Marthae for the repose of the soul of Natalia Di Giorgi Maovaz, the wife of an employee of the Vatican Museums.
Maovaz drowned off the coast of Sardinia while trying to rescue her seven-year-old boy and his friend, according to L’Osservatore Romano. Her husband was able to rescue the children but not his wife.
Maovaz’s family was present at the Mass, which took place on July 25.
