Remembering Louis Dalle Perier sscc (Prinsuéjols, France)

From 23 - 24 July, two days were dedicated in memory of Louis Dalle sscc. These days of remembrance took place in his native village, Prinsuéjols (France). It was a time to celebrate his centenary of birth (1922) and the fortieth anniversary of his death (1982). 

Many people attended the celebrations - some 200 people - including around fifty people representing the Dalle family: nephews, great-nephews, great-nephews, great-great-nephews... He was one of 15 children and the youngest of the brothers!

The two days were full of wonder testimonies of an exceptional man; after having suffered in the extermination camps, he shared the sufferings of the Andina people whom he defended to the limit of his physical strength. Just before his fatal accident, exhausted and in pain, he thought of resigning as Prelate of Ayaviri; moreover, his last trip to Lima was to meet the Nuncio and to prepare a stay with his family, to whom he had always remained very close.

His sudden "departure" and the total destitution in which he was found at the scene of the accident (even his episcopal ring had been stolen) is a beautiful image of his total dedication to his people and to the Lord.
