Saint Zita of Lucca was born in Italy to a poor family. She grew up as an obedient child doing God’s will. At age 12, she became a housekeeper to a wealthy family in Lucca and ended up staying for 48 years. Daily Mass and prayers, along with her duties as a housekeeper, were part of her routine. She did these so perfectly that the other servants were jealous, but she won them over with her generous spirit. Initially, her employers were concerned with her gifts to the poor but accepted her acts of charity and “ trusted her with the keys” of freedom of the household to care for the poor, sick, and the prisoners. Her body is incorrupt to this day. On April 27th the people of Lucca bake bread and bring flowers to the church of San Frediano.
