A boy’s testimony about Fr. Albera:
“I was deeply edified by our superior’s modest and humble demeanour, his constant and encouraging smile, and his sweet, lovable, attractive manner. There was no recreation in which he did not appear among us; and he also came to visit us in other places, especially in the dining hall and chapel. He didn’t speak much, but his very presence was enough to command respect….”.
(Domenico GARNERI, Fr. Paul Albera, Second Successor of Don Bosco. Biographical Memoirs, Turin, International Publishing Company 1939, p. 80)
