Santi del giorno:

San Gaspare e un fanciullo. Cappella invernale della Santissima Trinità.

L?eletto, reso, per illustre e raro dono, umile e non solo in mezzo alle virtù, ma in mezzo alla gloria istessa delle virtù, riceve un doppio testimonio da Dio e dagli uomini, della sua disposizione alla ecclesiastica vocazione. (Ms Bg 5304 )

1834: A serious accident was narrowly avoided at the Stimmate under construction, when a staging collapsed. [It might be noted that CS I, p. 268, gives 1834 as the date ? whereas the same volume, p. 504, gives 1835].

1842: Sitientes Saturday ? John Lenotti was ordained a Priest by Bishop Mutti in his Residence Chapel.

1864: Francis Sogaro was ordained a Priest ? he was a product of the School at the Stimmate, and the House Chronicle noted that his ordination made up somewhat for the death of Fr.

Bragato who had been his first Confessor when he entered the Congregation.
