Oil Dedicated to Simona Tronci
Simona Tronci, a girl in odour of sanctity. Holiness is not denied to young people or reserved to religious, priests and nuns.
It’s demonstrated by the Simona Tronci’s extraordinary life, a girl who died at age of 24, for whom the Church has opened, with the establishment of a special court, the cause for beatification.
Born on 13th October, 1960, the third of six children of a married and practising Christian couple, Simona has a normal life: school, catechism and sports in her childhood and adolescence; successfully attends the high school where achieves the grade of 55/60.
A normal girl, who makes sports and has a boyfriend that loves so much. In this regard, in her diary writes: Give me, O Lord, to make him understand of what kind of love I love him, talk to his heart so he knows. Only You, can keep us together, if you want, or separate us. But one thing I ask You: guide me in my actions, so that I won’t make mistakes..
One day in 1983, while she was successfully attending the Pontifical Theological Faculty of Sardinia (one of the first women on the island) arrives the disease: a tumour that in a year, consumes her completely. The drama was only in the body because her spirit was singing. I feel inside me that my life is renewing – writes in her diary – I listen to a certain courage which strengthens me, a new faith that consoles me, a new joy that makes me a tireless witness. Died on 18th April, 1984, Holy Wednesday.
