Saint Maria Goretti is a 11-year-old girl who the Question Box Moderator suggests Becky May Tipover emulate - should the boy in class cut her throat with a ruler (Saint Fidgeta and Other Parodies, 49).

Inspiration

Maria Goretti (1890-1902) was mortally wounded by her neighbor, 20-year-old Alessandro Serenelli, who attacked her with intent to sexually abuse her. Before dying, she forgave her killer.  In 1950, Goretti was declared the Patron Saint of Modern Youth by Pope Pius XII, the youngest officially recognized Roman Catholic saint ever, with her mother and her murderer in attendance at the canonization ceremony[1].
