Oil Dedicated to Vera Grita

Vera Grita second of four sisters, lived and studied in Savona where she obtained her teaching degree. At the age of 21, during an air raid on the city (1944), she was overwhelmed and trampled by the fleeing crowd, suffering serious consequences for her physique which remained marked forever. She lived quietly, largely unnoticed in her short earthly life, teaching in the schools of the Ligurian hinterland, where she earned everyone’s esteem and affection for her good and mild character.

In Savona, in the Salesian parish of Mary Help of Christians. She attended Mass and was assiduous in the sacrament of Penance. Salesian Cooperator since 1967. She fulfilled her call in the total gift of herself to the Lord. Who extraordinarily gave Himself to her. in the depths of her heart. With the “Voice”, with the “Word”, to communicate to her the Work of Living Tabernacles. She submitted all her writings to the spiritual director, Salesian Fr Gabriello Zucconi, and kept the secret of that call in the silence of her heart.

Vera Grita responded to the gift of God by bearing witness in her life. Marked by the fatigue of her illness. The encounter with the Risen One and dedicating. Herself with heroic generosity to the teaching and education of students. Helping the needs of the families and bearing witness to a life of evangelical poverty. A Christian existence made of patience and constancy in and for the Good.

She died on December 22, 1969, at 46. In a hospital room where she had spent the last six months of her life. In a crescendo of sufferings accepted and lived in union with Jesus Crucified. “Vera’s soul,” wrote Fr Borra, SDB.
