Venerable María Montserrat Grases García: Age 17
"Montse" was a young Spanish girl whose parents taught her the joys of faith. She was totally selfless and gave herself to helping others. Eventually she wished to join Opus Dei, but was diagnosed with a form of bone cancer. She was more anxious about inconveniencing her parents with medical bills than about herself. She spent her final time on earth peacefully giving herself to God and others.
