Confessor – Spiritual Father – Miracle Worker! A new saint in Italy?
Padre Dominico da Cese (1905-1978) was not only a spiritual son of Padre Pio, he also had his own charisma. Faithful from everywhere came to him, then the rediscovery of the Holy Face of Manoppello made him famous. The Holy Veil placed on the face of Christ is extremely thin, has no color: it is not a painting! It shows the Face of Jesus Christ in the very first moment of the Resurrection.
Padre Domenico da Cese was convinced of the fact that the Shroud of Turin and the Holy Face show the same face, but at different times. In 1978, after he had venerated the Shroud in Turin, he had a car accident: he gave his life for this truth! And he returned to the Father’s house on September 17, 1978.
On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of his death, this book aims to retrace his human and spiritual itinerary by presenting for the first-time images and documents that had been collected and ordered for his beatification process. The canonical process was in fact opened by the Holy See in 2013, and in 2015, Padre Domenico was declared “Servant of God.”
