1881: God’s decree suspended!
Don Bosco paid a visit to Father Mortara Pio at Marseille. The latter was seriously sick and confined to bed. Later on writing to Don Bosco. he referred to his visit. When you honoured me by your visit at the home of the Marcoselles family in Marseille, you told me that Our Lord might suspend the death sentence which had already been pronounced upon me. It was indeed suspended, thanks to you. Now heaven help me if I do not dedicate whatever life still remains to me to building up, defending and spreading the mystical kingdom of God. (UM XV, 27-28)
