Mother Cabrini's Pastimes And Supporters Of Her Canonization

We can see the exhibition area that presents interesting evidence of Mother Cabrini's favorite hobby, collecting postcards, stamps and seals that she gathered herself or received from different parts of the world. Fond of philately, or stamp collecting, the Mother also subscribed to the magazine "Argentina Philatelic Club". Among the gifts received by the Institute of the Missionaries, in the back you can see also a relic of San Bassiano, from 400, donated by the Bishop of Lodi, Monsignor Pietro Calchi Novati. The exhibition presents references to Mother Antoinetta Della Casa, the Superior General who was responsible for the placement of Mother Cabrini's statue in St. Peter, the Bishop of Lodi, Pietro Calchi Novati, who initiated one of the processes relating to the establishment of Saintliness requirements, and Cardinal Ildefonso Schuster, Archbishop of Milan, today Sainted.
