I lived with a saint

Recently, I heard of the news of the passing of Msgr. Francesco Angelicchio. And just now, got a link to a post about his death here.

It is true, "que era un sacerdote muy sacerdote y con gran sentido del humor." He was very holy. I know, I had the great fortune of being with him in the same center of Opus Dei for more than 5 months in 1990. In the summer, when Don Francesco was away on a seminar, the director told me to use the room assigned to Don Francesco for some weeks. Hoping the odor of sanctity rub off me.

Msgr. Angelicchio was then the parish priest of the Parocchia di San Giovanni Battista al Collatino, a church within the grounds of Centro ELIS. Here's a youtube link.
