ANNIVERSARIES AT THE MUSEUM: IN MEMORY OF SISTER MARIA PIA GIUDICI ON THE FOURTH ANNIVERSARY OF HER DEATH

At the Museum of Peace - MAMT we remembered Sister Maria Pia Giudici on the fourth anniversary of her death. Pictures, poems, paintings, books, interviews and much more on the large video walls of the Museum recounted the long life of a religious who made the Gospel and love for Jesus the foundation of her existence.
President Michele Capasso was moved to tears as he recalled his long friendship with Sister Maria Pia and the example of a simple life in joy, well summed up in the film "MARIA PIA GIUDICI: THE JOY IN A SIMPLE LIFE".
In connection with the San Biagio House of Prayer (Subiaco) there was a touching moment of collective remembrance that ended with the intervention of Bishop Giovanni Giudici, Sister Maria Pia's nephew.
On this occasion the visits of Sister Maria Pia to the Don Bosco Museum and Chapel were recalled.
