GHARB – Karmni Grima

Karmni Grima (2 February 1838 – 25 February 1922) was born in the village of Għ arb in Gozo, the sister island of Malta. Her parents, Thomas and Antonia (née Apap) were poor laborers who worked in the fields located on the nearby hills of Ghammar. Every day, after hearing mass (liturgy) in a small chapel dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Karmni would go to work in the fields. She was a Maltese peasant whose mystical religious experience led to the construction of the church of Our Lady of Ta’ Pinu.
