Title: Venerable Bruno Lanteri
Post by: CyrilSebastian on September 17, 2019, 08:41:30 PM
Bruno Lanteri was born on May 12, 1759 in Cumeo, Italy.   
He directed himself to the priesthood. At the time candidates began by taking   
the cassock with the permission of the bishop, and then prepared for Holy Orders   
by studying theology at a university or seminary.     
In September 1777, Bruno obtained such permission from his bishop, and began his studies at the University of Turin.

In early 1872, Father von Diessbach asked Bruno to follow him to Vienna, Austria, to aid Pope Pius VI,   
who would be there to negotiate with Emperor Joseph II. For the previous two years, Joseph II had been claiming   
authority over the discipline and life of the Church.

In Vienna, Bruno participated in conferences on canon law and theology.     
Then, on Father von Diessbach's advice, he returned to Turin.     
In 1776, Father von Diessbach started an association, the Christian Fellowship.   
He relied on Bruno to manage the association.

Mass, the rosary, visits to the Blessed Sacrament, spiritual reading.

Bruno Lanteri offered retreats in retreat houses which were later closed under the French occupation.   
So Bruno converted La Grangia, a country house he owned near Turin, into a retreat center that could host around twenty people.

The goal of the Christian Friendship was to unite Catholics in Piedmont for the glory of God, their personal   
satisfaction, and the defense of morals and dogmas against rationalists through the sharing of good books.
