Dear Gianluigi Contarin, now you too are up there watching over us

June 17, 2021

“Dear Gianluigi Contarin, now you too are up there watching over us. You have been a great Man, always ready to help people, and in fact we collaborated together several times. You were the mayor of Riese Pio X, the little town I love and which saw my childhood. I remind you with your last words that you wrote to us, on June 5: ‘Dear Friends of Anima Universale… you too are part of my life…’
Gianluigi, forever in my heart.
Thank You, dear Friend.”

Father Fulgenzio Cortesi: a Holy Man

Leini (Turin, Italy), 4 June 2021

“Father Fulgenzio, my friend,

We have come a long way together… you gave us the honor of helping you in your great mission in Africa. We shared joys and sorrows together.

You have always been part of our family and today we have “lost” a special brother. Humanly, the pain is great, as is great the love that united us and unites us forever.

Those who had the grace to meet you can say that in their life they have known a true Saint, a Saint in flesh and blood.
A Saint who loved all my monks enormously.

I keep you forever in my heart.”—Swami Roberto
