"Mamma Rosa" Beatified: Mother of 11 children!
"An Italian mother who raised 11 children was moving ahead on the road to possible sainthood Sunday amid a Vatican campaign in favor of large families. Eurosia Fabris, known as "Mamma Rosa," raised two children whose mother died while they were little, then married their father and with him had nine children.
The virtues of Fabris, who died in 1932, were being honored Sunday in a beatification ceremony in Vicenza, near her native farming village in northern Italy. Beatification is the last formal step before possible sainthood."
