Today, looking back I could say the same thing as St. Pio.
At the death of my Father in fact, I was sure that I would have continued his work. I had no doubts, but then I learned that "Because my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways" (Isaiah 55-8).
Suddenly, one evening in 1987, I clearly understood that I was called to produce Rosaries.
Since that moment, the Rosary has become for me and my wife Cinzia, not only a job but the center of our life, our family, and a passion for an instrument through which we can tell the beauty of faith and prayer.
Many times when I create a Rosary I think that it is an object that the Madonna had with her in the most known apparitions. Yes exactly, our Heavenly Mother showed a Rosary in her hands when appearing to the visionaries.
Therefore, if she "appreciates" it and proposes it to help the recitation of such a powerful prayer, then when you create and produce it, you can't just be making it as for any other object, you have to love, respect, create and produce it as a mission to be accomplished with all the love and creativity of which you are capable.
But always with the awareness that when everything is done with the greatest love and passion, we are only "useless servants" Luke (17, 7-10).
