Locri (RC), 26th December 2015. The convention “Francis II of Bourbon, man of peace in the storms of history” was held at the Episcopal Seminary of Locri organized by the Cultural Association Due Sicilie di Gioiosa Jonica in cooperation with the Delegation of Calabria. The event was an opportunity to rediscover, on the occasion of the 121st anniversary of his death, the great figure of His Majesty Francis II, the last king of the Two Sicilies, who on 27th December 1894, took leave of the world stage on tiptoe in the same sober and dignified style with which he had lived his life. In his will, Francis II of Bourbon had written: “ I thank all those who were good to me, I forgive all those who wronged me and I beg pardon from those who I may have somehow harmed”. “Permission”, “Apology”, “Thanks”, over a century later, the three words uttered by the “Saint and King”, were reaffirmed “ For a happy and strong life” by Pope Francis during a recent catechesis held in Saint Peter’s Square. At the end of the convention, in the splendid Chapel of the Seminary, Holy Mass was celebrated to commemorate the event officiated by Don Nicola Commisso Meleca, Rector of the same Episcopal Seminary.
