FEDERICO GEBELIN (priest)
BORN: Cles (Trento) – 11.2.1912
DIED: Negrar (Verona) – 12.9.1975
Fr. Federico was short in stature and gifted with a tenor voice and a cheerful character. He felt at ease with everybody, but especially with the youth and the children. He lived in the communities of Udine, Gemona, Trento, Milan, Pavia, Parma and S. Severino Marche.
While working as an assistant parish priest at S. Croce in Milan he got a cerebral atrophy with subsequent lesions in the brain and had to be admitted to San Leonardo in Verona. He had to suffer increasing pains and he accepted his cross with Christian resignation and abandonment into God’s hands.
