 1872: Death of Maria Magone

Joanna Magone died at the Oratory on January 20, 1872. Father Rua’s obituary carries this entry about her: “She was privileged to be Michael Magone’s mother. After his death she gave herself entirely to God’s service. Allowed to end her days at the Oratory where her son had led a saintly life, she showed her gratitude by working tirelessly. She always attended early Mass, loved prayer and feared sin. After an illness of seven days she received the Last Rites and died fully resigned, invoking Jesus, Mary, and Joseph and praying to her son Michael to take her with him to heaven. (BM X, 149-footnote)
