Bl. Maria Fortunata Viti Biography

Bl. Maria Fortunata Viti was Little girl of Luigi Viti, a speculator and substantial consumer, and Anna Bono, who passed on when Anna was fourteen.

Raised her eight kin after her mom’s demise, regularly functioning as a household worker to help them. Joined the Benedictines at the San Maria de’Franconi religious community in Veroli, Italy on 21 March 1851 at age 24, taking the name Sister Maria Fortunata.

She was more than 70 years in the Order, her days spent turning, sewing, washing, repairing – and asking the entire time.

Sister Maria never figured out how to peruse or compose, and never held any situation in her home, yet she had an incredible commitment to the Blessed Sacrament, and entire ages of nuns and nearby laypeople gained from her tranquil, unassuming, cheerful, devoted model.
