"The life of the Saints is a rule of life for others": with these words in Turin, in the Sanctuary of Our Lady Help of Christians, on February 8 1995, Archbishop Card. Giovanni Saldarini started the canonical process for five cases of beatification. One of these was the Poor Clare nun Sister Maria Consolata Betrone. The biographical outlines of the new Servant of God, born in Saluzzo (Cuneo) on April 6 1903 and dying on July 18 1946 in the Convent of the Sacred Heart of Moriondo Moncalieri (Turin) could have been briefly spent behind the rise and fall of a life which only lasted 43 years, of which 17 were in a strictly closed order. It could have been thus if, instead, God had not made an incandescent, eternally rich meteor of love out of her brief existence. Her life was an unceasing act of love expressed in her prayer: "Jesus, Mary, I love you. Save souls." This book tells the story of the message she was asked to bring to the world. Now in its 15th printing.194 pp.
