1904: Mortal remains of Don Bosco

During the 10th General Chapter, the last one presided over by Father Rua, the tomb of Don Bosco was opened for the first time, in the presence of Card.Richelmy, Archbishop of Turin.The body of the saint was found to be well preserved. (cfr. Annali III, p.448-719)

1907: Servant of God Teresa Pantellini

She died at the age of 29 and was a professed religious for 4 years. Theresa was a pupil of the salesian sisters at Milan. After her mother’s death, she decided to become a nun. After only four years of exemplary religious life, she died a holy death at Rome. A few months earlier Don Bosco had appeared to her to cure her, but she politely directed him to a nearby room where a sick sister was eager to be cured. This other sister was in fact cured. Pantellini cause was introduced in 1944. (cfr. “Boll. Sal.” 1957, p.324)
