Good and Faithful Servant Padre Sisto is buried!!!!!!!!

This morning sharp at 10am we began praying rosary for the soul of Padre Sisto.....the Chapel is packed with relatives and Nuns

These nuns about 35 of them travelled from Rome to Rovigo which is about 500km.....they came to pay their respect and last homage to their spiritual Father......

The friary is in a small town where he died,.......it is postulancy house......

The friary is old and today there are about 25 postulants from different provinces and even countries....

The friars paying their homage to Padre Sisto......

Padre Sisto resting in peace......a generous and loving soul....always wore a smile.....a yes father ....for all

Rai TV hosted his program every Sunday for many years....simple guidelines he would give to families....

The Bishop comes from the parish of Sisto.,...he paid rich tributes to him saying that he had name and spiritual fame,.....he was popular and loved by the parishioners....his family was an examplary family in the parish

The friars showed by their big presence that Sisto loved friars and fraternal life......

The beautiful statute of Mother Mary overlooking the Coffin of Padre Sisto....now that he is in heaven definitely Mother Mary is with him....

It is very touching moment for us Capuchins....that we all carry the coffin of the deceased friar to the cemetery......the friary getting ready.....to carry Mortal remains of Padre Sisto

The Bishop conducting the last rites.....

The friars......surround the coffin.....as they bade a last farewell to Beloved Sisto

May Padre Sisto live in Memories and hearts
