The Holiness of the Church in the Nineteenth Century – Venerable Benvenuto Bambozzi

The Venerable Benvenuto Bambozzi was a member of the Conventuals. He died, aged sixty-six, on 24 March 1875, at his birthplace, Osimo, in the county of Ancona, where he long served his Order as novice-master. A severe trial for him was the closing of his monastery by the Italian government.
