Life of Fr. Michael Rua: Don Bosco’s First Successor
Francis DESRAMAUT SDB
Aldo GIRAUDO SDB
The centenary of the death of Bl. Michael Rua offers us a chance to take stock of the life of Don Bosco’s first successor. The Salesian family owes much to him. What would it have become without Fr. Michael Rua? The Author tries to provide a rather free re-reading of documentation found in the Fondo Don Rua at the Salesian Central Archive in Rome, made available to researchers in microfilm.
