THE SICILIAN DELEGATION GATHERS IN PRAYER TO COMMEMORATE TT.MM. UMBERTO II AND MARIA JOSE AND BEGINS CHARITABLE ACTIVITIES

The Delegation for Sicily of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy patronised a Holy Mass in memory of TT.MM. the King Umberto II and Queen Maria Josè promoted by the Messina Delegation of the National Institute for the Guard of Honour to the Royal Tombs of the Pantheon, led by Cav. Dr. David Truscello.

The service was presided over by Msgr. Cesare Di Pietro, Auxiliary Bishop of Messina, assisted by the Vicar of the Orders, Cav. Rev. Andrea Di Paola, by the Chaplain of the V Infantry Regiment Aosta”, Rev. Paolo Solidoro, and by Father Pietro Roma of the Order of Friars Minor Conventual at the Military Shrine of Christ the King, where the bodies of war victims from Messina are buried.

The initiative was officially endorsed by the Army and Navy authorities in Messina, the Provincial Inspectorate of Volunteer Nurses of the Italian Red Cross, who took part in it with a large representation, the Blue Ribbon Institute and the Convegni di Cultura Maria Cristina di Savoia.

 H.E. Msgr. Di Pietro recalled the high virtues of the two Sovereigns in his homily. At the end of the service, accompanied by the Eugenio Arena” choir, which performed the evocative song Signore delle Cime” as a tribute to H.M. the Queen Maria Josè, a donation of didactic material was made to Rev. Solidoro on behalf of the Dynastic Orders and of the National Institute for the Guard of Honour to the Royal Tombs of the Pantheon, which will be assigned to the students of schools in Lebanon, where the V Aosta” Regiment will soon be transferred as part of the UNIFIL humanitarian mission.
