Nizza Monferrato (Italy). On 3 September 2020, on the initiative of the  Historical Archive of the house of O. L. of Grace of   Nizza Monferrato (AT) of the FMA Province Mary Help of Christians (IPI) of Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta, the prayer of the Holy Rosary will be transmitted in live streaming to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the decision of the Venerable Sister Teresa Valsè Pantellini to enter the Congregation of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians.

Now I can no longer delay: I would fail in a duty … You can put before me any objection, any difficulty: but I warn you that they will not be new to me, because I have measured and pondered them all in the most real calm of mind, in absolute and perfect indifference of will, only to see and know what the will of God is and not to satisfy myself. The conclusion was the irrevocable decision I made.”

After years of difficulties and trials, Teresa began her formative journey on 2 February  1901, in the FMA House in via Marghera, Rome. The joy and simplicity of Mornese, the silent sacrifice, her continuous union with God and filial love for Mary are the cornerstones of her life project. Struck by tuberculosis, she spent the last months of her life in the infirmary of Turin, where her life ended on 3 September  1907.

Sr. Teresa Valsé Pantellini is the youngest FMA whose process of beatification and canonization was begun (in 1926),  and which on 12 July 1986 reached the declaration of venerability.

On 3 September  2020, the day on which her dies natalis is remembered, the Holy Rosary prayed through the intercession of Sister Teresa Valsè Pantellini 120 years after her “irrevocable decision”, will be transmitted at 21:00 (Italian time) in live streaming with the communities of the cities in which she lived some stages of her life:

Milan, where she was born and received Baptism;

Florence, place of her infancy and youth;

Rome, where she chose and fulfilled her vocation to become an FMA;

Nizza Monferrato, where she consecrated herself forever in the sanctuary of “Our Lady of Grace” and where she is buried;

Turin, place of her illness and death.

The rosary, prepared by the Novices of the Novitiate dedicated to her, “Sister Teresa Valsè Pantellini” of Rome, can be followed through the  YouTube Channel of the Historical Archive  and the   Facebook page of the Historical Archive of the Roman Province St. John  Bosco (IRO).
