Fr Pietro GarelliITA - ESP - ENG

At 3 p.m. today (local time), 8 November, in the infirmary of the community of Alba, following a serious respiratory crisis, our brother Disciple of the Divine Master has returned
to the Father. BRO. PIETRO STEFANO GARELLI, 91 years, 61 of Pauline life, 56 of religious profession.


Bro. Pietro – known by everybody through his pet name "Pierino" – was born in Gorzegno (Cuneo) on 17 May 1921 and has passed the threshold of the Congregation already as an adult on 15 September 1951 in Alba. He had lived the terrible experience of the war as a soldier; with reason his superiors, in their report for the religious investiture (1953), note down: "He is a made man, familiar with the hardships of life." At the end of his two years of novitiate at Ostia (1954-1956), he made here his first profession on 8 September 1956 and, at the end of his formation, the perpetual profession on 8 September 1961 in Rome.

Thoughts

Quando vi è molta preghiera, con l’osservanza religiosa e un apostolato intelligente, con la pratica della vera povertà... le Case nascono, crescono, senza notevoli scosse; e si sviluppano come una pianta messa lungo la corrente delle acque (UPS III, 36-37).

Cuando hay mucha oración, juntamente con la observancia religiosa, un apostolado inteligente y la práctica de la verdadera pobreza... las casas nacen y crecen sin sobresaltos y se desarrollan como un árbol plantado al borde de la acequia (UPS III, 36-37).

When there is a lot of prayer, with religious observance and an intelligent apostolate, with the practice of true poverty... the houses are established and they grow without many problems; they grow as a plant rooted along the water stream (UPS III, 36-37).
