Addolorata Penza had an eventful life.  She immigrated to the US at the young age of 16,  and was briefly detained by the authorities upon arrival in NY-presumably because she was an unaccompanied minor-before being released to her brother Umberto.  She soon found work as a skilled embroiderer on the top floor of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory,  and was fortunate to escape with her life during the tragic fire of 25 March 1911.  She married young,  to a certain mason named Joseph Gili,  but the marriage was said to have been an unhappy one.  Addolorata settled with her husband in Orange,  NJ,  and had five children before Joseph died in 1931.  Although she was now a widowed mother and working two jobs,  this did not prevent her from following her passion for religion.  She became a devotee of the Holy Face of Jesus-the famous shroud of Turin-and opened up her home as a place for prayer.  Addolrata’s reputation as a holy woman has been well remembered,  and she is currently being investigated for possible canonization.
