Prima pagina della vita del Bertoni scritta in inglese da P. Joseph Riley.

The lawyer suggested that the Congregation accept any offer, as the government might use again Fr. Marani?s ? this was a Report on the Congregation that he had written in which he considered the Decree of Praise tantamount to Papal Approval, which the Congregation at that time had not received] ? and also the fact that the Congregation had acquired property, as at Sale di Povo, which gave every appearance of a legal act, performed by a legal body.

1892: A Memorial Service was held for the recently deceased Fr. Benciolini. The Pastor of St. Stephen?s Church celebrated the Mass - Fr. Zocchi delivered the sermon and told the hearers that in the place of sorrow, there should only be admiration for the holy old man who had just died.
