He was the first aspirant that entered our Congregation, after the canonical erection of our Institute in 30.09.1955.

He was an excellent religious and priest, that was mourned by many people.  He wanted to be a missionary.  He dedicated himself with zeal to the Oratory, to the sacred ministries, especially to hear confessions.   He always suffered from a weak health that in the end brought him to the tomb with great pains.

He promoted the devotion to our Lady of Sorrows in our house of the Stimate.  He took care of collecting the memoirs of our first fathers, in view of transmitting them in an accurate and authentic way.
