St. Gemma Galgani

Saint Gemma Galgani is the patron of students, druggists, and apothecaries. She was the elder daughter of seven and both parents had died by the time she had reached the age of eighteen. Saint Gemma Galgani, despite her poor health, cared for her younger brothers and sisters until she was miraculously healed by prayers to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. She then became a Passionist tertiary and a stigmatist. Saint Gemma Galgani was visited often by her guardian angel, Jesus, and Mary. Saint Gemma Galgani's feast day is April 11th.
