Tomorrow morning (July 18, 2020) at 11.30 a.m. in Bari, at the Church St. Fara there will be his funeral. May the Lord open the doors of Paradise to him. From 3:00 p.m. today the body will be in the crypt of the Church St. Fara. Thank you for your prayers!"

The Association Luisa Piccarreta – Little Children of the Divine Will in Corato joins the prayer of the Capuchin Friars and the Bucci Family to ask the Lord that Fr. Bernardino may be welcomed into the bosom of the Father where the light of the Divine Will, which he knew and lived on earth, will fill him with all joy and peace.  

Biographical notes

Father Bernardino Giuseppe Bucci was born in Corato, on June 15, 1935. In 1955, he entered the Holy Novitiate of the Capuchin Friars of Alessano, in the province of Lecce, and completed his philosophical studies in the city of Scorrano. On March 14, 1964, in the Capuchin Church of Triggiano, he was ordained a priest by His Excellency Mgr Nicodemo, Archbishop of Bari.  He was sent to Rome to the International College to specialize in Missionary Theology. When he returned, he was assigned to the Convent of Scorrano, as spiritual Father of the Seraphic Seminary.  He attended the Licentiate and Doctorate Course at the Ecumenical Faculty of St. Nicholas in Bari; at the same time, in 1972, he qualified in literatures.

Father Bernardino  was the nephew of Rosaria Bucci (1898-1978) who was a disciple of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta. He collaborated with Sister Assunta Marigliano in the birth of the Association in Corato and for many years he was its Spiritual Assistant.  He strongly promoted the opening of the Diocesan Inquiry into the life, virtue and reputation for holiness of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta (1994-2005) and became a member of the Tribunal as Promoter of the Faith. He always kept alive the memory of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta and her writings.

Fiat semper! While we will miss our "Big Brother" in the Divine Will family, we are overjoyed that he now enters into the fullness of the Divine Volition, enjoying the fruits of his acts and works! Pray for us who continue to work for the coming of God's Kingdom, on earth as it is in Heaven! Peace and Good to you forever! Mentre e' certo ci manca il nostro "fratello maggiore" nella famiglia della Divina Volonta', siamo filicissimi siccome ora P. Bucci entra nella pienezza del Divin Volere, godendo i frutti dei suoi atti e opere! Ti racommandiamo ai tuoi preghiere potenti come continuiamo il lavoro per il venuto del Regno di Dio, come in cielo cosi in terra! Pace e Bene a te per sempre!
