1877: Episcopal Jubilee of Pius IX

The closer Pius IX came to the end of his life, the greater grew the love of the faithful for his august person. They gave solemn witness to this on the occasion of his episcopal jubilee in 1877. He was a bishop for 50 years and Pope for 31. Don Bosco sent the Oratory’s director and the Novice Master to Rome to represent the Salesian Congregation offi-cially and to offer the Pope an album. (cfr. BM XIII, 98ff)
