P. Cesare Bettoni è ritornato alla Casa del Padre

Roma, 21 Maggio 2020

Carissimi, ho ricevuto la triste notizia che il nostro amato confratello P. Cesare Bettoni ci ha lasciati ed è ritornato alla casa del Padre. Lo affidiamo alla misericordia del Signore e ci uniamo in preghiera con i suoi familiari. Appena possibile vi invieremo altre informazioni. 

Riposi nella pace del Signore! 

P. Bruno Rampazzo, rcj

Abbiamo appreso che le esequie si celebreranno sabato prossimo, alle ore 15.00, nella parrocchia di Sant'Andrea Apostolo, a Mairano (BS).

His master said to him, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. Since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities. Come, share your master’s joy.’ (Mt. 25:23)

I believe this is what the Lord tells Fr. Cè, an untiring worker in the harvest of the Lord; a servant of the Lord who has given everything of himself even to the last breath. Now, return to the Lord of the Harvest and share in his joy. 

As soon as I read the email announcing his death, I could not hold back my tears of sadness for the loss that touches me personally and I believe the same is true to so many other people. This is the first time I remember shedding so many tears for the passing away of a confrere. As I sobbed and whimpered, the only words I uttered repeatedly were "Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Fr. Cesare." 

You have touched so many lives, particularly the Rogationist confreres whom you accompanied in their years of training and formation. You would never know how much you have influenced us by your simplicity, transparency, consistency, and coherent Rogationist religious life. Your memory is alive in each of us. 

Go now and rest in peace. And from Heaven, watch over us, as we continue working in the harvest of the Lord, hopefully similar to what you did.

Ci mancherai sempre, ma un giorno ci rincontreremo.
Grazie p. Cesare, per quello che mi hai insegnato.

Fr. Bruno and community, please accept my condolences on the passing of Fr. Cesare. What a wonderful man and priest! Thanks for sharing him with the Filipino people. I pray for him, his family and your religious family. Cardinal Tagle

Caro Cesare, il Signore ti ricompensi per tutto il bene che hai fatto nell'esercizio del ministero sacerdotale. Dopo la lunga "passione" ti accolga nella sua Dimora. Ringrazio il Signore per la tua bontà, la semplicità e la capacità di discernimento in campo formativo. Grazie per il tuo sorriso semplice e schietto accompagnato dall'humor. Deo Gratias. Requeim Aeternam. Addio.

Caro P. Cesare,

anche nella sofferenza più pesante sei stato distinto e riservato.

Ora riposa in pace.
