Pasqua 1943: Apostolic Delegate in Australia Giovanni Panico wrote the preface for his publication
L’Amico del Prigioniero
L’amico del Prigioniero was distributed to Italian prisoners of war in 1943. It contained prayers, hymns, service of the mass and the liturgical calendar. In 1946, 75 years ago, Easter was celebrated on 21st April.
Did the Italian prisoners of war see Anno 1951 and ponder: is the war going to last this long!
