Nicola D'Onofrio, Born March 24, 1943.
From his writings.
"...I am in love with Christ Crucified. Far from me every other joy, every other liking that is not for my beloved Crucified Bridegroom. I desperately want to own your torn Heart completely, to be inside it, incarnated into one reality: I want to renounce myself completely, to completely be You, my Love. I want to renounce myself always, even in the most hard way, not me anymore, but You, You, Crucified Love." - Nicolo D'Onofrio
Good and merciful God, who called your servant Nicola D'Onofrio to follow Jesus Christ by offering the riches of his young spirit and his burning heart in the service of your Son in the person of the sick: Glorify your faithful servant and grant that the young people of our days recognize in him a model of life in the way of love and sacrifice, to bring all souls to you, who lives and reigns with the Son and the Holy Spirit in the hearts of your children. Amen.
Ven. Nicolo died June 12, 1964 at the age of 21.
