The Five Volumes of St. Gaspar Bertoni’s Original Writings
Throughout his long life – of nearly 76 years and nine months – and living 52 years and almost 9 months of his priesthood – St. Gaspar Bertoni left behind a considerable amount of carefully handwritten notes. These included personal letters, a spiritual diary, many of sermons and retreats, particularly to the Clergy and seminarians.
A Stigmatine priest, Fr. Gino Benaglia [April 7, 1900 – Dec. 3, 1998] spent about ten years of his life studying these works of Fr. Bertoni, and carefully transcribing a selective amount that appears now as The Bertoni Manuscripts.
Fr. Benaglia’s labor of love provided the Stigmatine Founder’s family of followers with abundant material to know St. Gaspar Bertoni better.
What follows here is an effort to provide an analytical index of these five volumes.
