When he went for the first time to that Christ, with whom he would have taken so much confidence to die for him, when he shared with the seminarians the anxiety of becoming minister of God when he wore the embroidered shirt and received from Cardinal Ernesto Ruffini’s hands Sacrament of order.
All the cuts of Don Giuseppe Puglisi’s those that are known and less known life were contained in the eighteen panels of the exhibition, which was inaugurated in the Cathedral on the 7th anniversary of his death.
The 18 panels were cared for by Lia Caldarella, Sergio Mammina and the members of the diocesan commission for the recognition of his martyrdom.
Some unpublished excerpts of Brancaccio’s pastor’s poem killed by the mafia and the most beautiful, curious and sympathetic photographs of his priesthood were also published.
In this 2023 edition, published on the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the martyrdom, three panels have been added (Beatification, the coming of Pope Francis for the 25th anniversary of the martyrdom and “the love that becomes service”) edited by Lia Caldarella, Sergio Quartana, Maria Lo Presti, Father Francesco Stabile, Giuseppe Maniaci.
The exhibition remained in the Cathedral for the whole month, then it travelled to the schools and parishes.
These days, near the beatification date, it was again exhibited in the Cathedral and was also enriched with a folding support for the exhibit translated into four languages.
