(ANSA) – ALEXANDRIA, 05 NOV – First a brief moment of prayer and suffrage in the barracks of the Provincial Command, then the celebration of mass in the cathedral. Two moments to commemorate the second anniversary of the outbreak of the Quargnento farmhouse, in the Alessandria area, which cost the death of the firefighters Antonino Candido, Marco Triches and Matteo Gastaldo. “We are not here only to commemorate, but to be close to families by forming a true Church that knows how to look beyond death”, the reflection of the chaplain, Don Augusto Piccoli.
For the affair, the spouses Giovanni Vincenti and Antonella Patrucco have already been sentenced, who hoped to collect the insurance premium from the explosion of the farmhouse. “Time passes, but it’s like it just happened. We try every day, but it’s very difficult. Stay close to us”, the words of the mother of one of the three victims, Anna Triches. “They were two unforgettable years”, adds Roberto Marchioni, provincial commander at the time of the tragedy now in Verbania, where he also worked on the Mottarone cable car.
“It is a Eucharist that has the flavor of sadness and bitterness, but the Lord help us to look with new eyes”, is the invitation of the bishop, Monsignor Guido Gallese, who during the homily exhorted “to seek all the ways to ensure that suffering is not in vain. Today our thoughts turn to the idea of sacrifice. Sacrificing has a similar meaning to purifying: if purifying means making pure, sacrificing means making sacred. Sadness must not grip us. We must be grateful to those who generously expose themselves to risk and danger. ” (HANDLE).
