(ANS - Rome) - A few days ago the whole world recalled the attack of 13 May 1981 against John Paul II: the Polish Pope was miraculously saved and always attributed his salvation to the intercession of Our Lady. Perhaps, however, not everyone knows that a few days later, on 29 May 1981, it was a Salesian brother who was the victim of an attack by the Red Brigades, and he too was saved due to a series of "fortunate" circumstances, which he, too, attributes to the protection of Mary. On the occasion of the episode's 40th anniversary, that Salesian, Bro. Giuseppe Magagna, granted us an interview.
