LUIGI SCHIANCHI (Priest)
AGE – 45 years old
He spent his first 12 years of priest in assisting the boys in our Colleges of Verona and Udine. Then, for six years, he was Director at Trent, still working among the youth. As his health as always somewhat uncertain and weak, he was then transferred to the Stimmate, where he sought to restore his waning strength. On an outing to Bolca, he suddenly collapsed to the ground, struck down by a heart attack. His young life, has just about reached its full bloom. While he appeared externally tranquil, he was not very expansive, and kept deep within himself a very acute sensitivity. His aspiration had always been to leave for the foreign missions, but he was not able to realize this dream due to his own delicate heal, and family concerns. His faithfulness to his duties as a religious assisted him to accept these limitations and these painful renunciations.
