Day 6: Swiss Alps, St Gianna, Milan Italy
by Steve Ray on June 20, 2022
Sad to leave Zürich, but we have to get to Italy. After a good night’s sleep and a hearty breakfast we boarded our buses and headed through the Swiss Alps which are always stunning. It’s hard to take in all of the grandeur of these mountains and the surrounding countryside and villages.
The highlight of the day was our meeting with St. Gianna Molla’s daughter Gianna. We met the Saint’s daughter at the cemetery and she gave us a short talk about her “Saint Mother”. We also saw the church where her kids were all baptized and had Zmass there in Magenta Italy. Extraordinary gift to all of our pilgrims.
St. Gianna gave her life to save her daughter at birth she was canonized by Pope John Paul II in May 2004.
Then on to Milan Italy for dinner and the night to be rested for all day Milan tomorrow.
