Blessed Alberto Marvelli

The optional memoria today for the Salesian Family of Blessed Alberto Marvelli, who used to frequent the Salesian Oratory in Rimini in his youth. Alberto died at the age of 38. His short life is marked by a remarkable love and concrete concern for the poor and those in need, in a special way during the Second War, but also afterwards. What struck me this morning was that he found his energy in the Eucharist. A profound desire for sanctity, and a touching love for the Lord in the Eucharist.
