Anniversary of the arrival of Blessed B. Silvestrelli in Moricone

On 16 June 2011 there was a celebration at the Passionist retreat of Moricone, Italy, marking the centenary of the arrival of Blessed Bernard Silvestrelli at that monastery.   On 9 December of that same year, he died unexpectedly after a tragic fall in the monastery. 

This Centenary Year of his death was initiated with a solemn Mass at which the new superior, Fr. Fiorenzo Panetta was the principal con-celebrant.  Local civil and military personnel from the town of Moricone were also present.
