In fact, how is it possible that the Salesians decided to abandon the Island shortly after a year and a half, when the Salesians had accepted the administration of a school of arts and crafts existing already in Dili (capital of the territory) – after having celebrated a contract with the Bishop of Macau, Josè da Costa Nunes, for a sexennium – what important reasons led the Major Superiors to take such a decision before the bilateral contract celebrated in January 1927 come to an end?

Filippo Rinaldi – Il Coadiutore Salesiano – Mons. Ignazio Canazei – Strenne pel 1931

Don Filippo Rinaldi ricorda di aver letto le parole dette dal Beato nostro Don Bosco sul concetto ch’egli aveva dei nostri Confratelli coadiutori e il relativo commento del caro Consigliere Professionale D.

Sede ha nominato a successore nel Vicariato di Shiu-Chow Mons. Ignazio Canazei che verrà presto consacrato colà dal delegato apostolico Mons. Costantini che si recherà perciò sul posto, forse accompagnato da un vescovo cinese. Ed infine, pronunzia la Strenna pel 1931 Continue reading “Filippo Rinaldi – Il Coadiutore Salesiano – Mons.
