1867: Archbishop’s assurance

The prize distribution at the Oratory was presided over by archbishop Riccardi di Netro.

After the ceremony he very graciously toured the premises. Though still unhappy, about the Salesian Congregation’s independence from him, he kept telling Father Celestine Durando who was beside him, “don’t worry! I will never fight you!” (BM VIII, 387)
