Declared venerable by Pope Francis on August 30, Enrica Beltrame Quattrocchi, known as Enrichetta, the last daughter of Maria and Luigi Beltrame Quattrocchi, was born thanks to the total trust that her parents placed in God.
She lived a life of dedication—to her parents, whom she accompanied into their old age, but also to the poorest of the poor through several charitable works. Hers was an exemplary life, and her heroic virtues were recognized by Pope Francis, who declared her venerable on August 30, 2021. She brought great love and goodness to the world, but that would never have happened without the heroic decision of her parents not to interrupt her nascent life.
