In Messina, the farewell to Father Massimiliano Nobile took place. The 45-year-old priest died from an illness during a trip to Albania. Although he was born in Partinico, in the province of Palermo, he was active in the church of Messina, where he was loved by many. The funeral was held at the Basilica of Sant’Antonio, attended by many faithful and Nobile’s family. Archbishop Giovanni Accolla, along with the general superior of the Rogationists, Father Bruno Rampazzo, and Father Antonio Leuci, who was with Father Massimiliano shortly before his death, officiated the funeral. The news of Father Nobile’s death has deeply shocked the Sicilian ecclesiastical community, and there has been an outpouring of condolences from religious institutions and those who knew him. The mayor of Partinico also expressed his condolences, describing Father Nobile as an exemplary citizen, committed to social causes and a moral reference point for the community. The coffin will be brought to Partinico in the afternoon for burial.
