St. Gaspar and the Creche

| | Comments (1)

"I learned that he was devoted to the Holy Christ child and he demonstrated this to me when on the eve of the holy Nativity he would never remain at home but would spend that night either in the Vincentian house in the Montecitorio area or in that of San Silvestro in the Quirinale area. The Vincentians would ordinarily give him an invitation to sing one of the other Masses. He showed a tremendous joy when he was given the gift of a Christmas crib by the nuns of Sant’Urbino. He had a setting made for it and had them set it up in the room where he slept."

From the deposition of Vincenzo Severini, companion and helper of St. Gaspar

Interesting to hear the comment about Gaspar singing. What else do you know of his singing? Did he sing because all priests were taught to sing the Mass whether or not they had good voices? Or was he known to have had a good voice?
