The mother of St. Maria Goretti signed the holy card with a cross rather than with her name because she was illiterate.

A second signature/cross of hers is on a separate sheet of paper.

A third sheet of paper confirms the signatures of the saint’s mother.

Pope Pius XII canonized St. Maria Goretti in 1950 and her mother was present at the canonization.
