I would have like to have read more of Pietro's letters, to see the whole of the correspondence unfold. I wonder if they're archieved somewhere?... Maybe I should read Saint Gianna Molla Wife Mother Doctor

Recommends it for: everyone -- married or not
I am LOVING this book ... I read a half-dozen to a dozen of these amazing letters St. Gianna wrote to her husband. Her life was pretty tough -- full of illness and separation and death -- and yet she is ALWAYS so full of joy.

This is definitely one to read and re-read. Also, this would be a great book for parishes to give to their Pre-Cana attendees!
This was my second time reading this book, but since I'm getting married in just a couple of weeks, I thought it would be worth it to re-read the letters of a modern-day, married Saint. It was. I hope I can live out my married life with the same spirit and faithfulness as Gianna and Pietro.
