How He Treated His Patients
As was his practice, he attended daily mass and received communion on Tuesday, April 12, 1927. Giuseppe then proceeded to go on his rounds to visit his patients. After a brief lunch, he sat down to take a quick break before continuing his work. He suffered a stroke and died at the age of forty-seven.
