On October 13, 2018, Pope Francis received at Casa Santa Marta in the Vatican, Antonietta Gargiulo, gravely wounded by her husband, who killed their two daughters before committing suicide.
It was Antonietta who wished to meet the Pontiff, specified a press release of the Holy See, which was published at the end of the day. After awakening from her coma, the survivor of the drama gave witness of her faith in God and of the strength of love, stronger than evil.
Last February, Antonietta’s husband, Luigi Capasso, from whom she was separated, entered her home, at Cisterna di Latina, and killed their two daughters Alessia 14 and Martina 8.
“My life today is a miracle,” said Antonietta Gargiulo, in words reported by “Vatican News.” “The real miracle was the love that surrounded me and that surrounded my two daughters. God’s word triumphed over death,” she said.
