Bova, Italy - 1933 - Mons. Giuseppe Cognata on pastoral visit to the Diocese of Bova (Reggio Calabria). The photo was taken during his early years at the Episcopate in Bova (1933-1939). Entering the diocese in June 1933, Monsignor Cognata - who had chosen the Pauline expression "Caritas Christi urget nos" as his episcopal motto - wanted to visit not only all the villages of the diocese, but also the groups of poor families scattered here and there in the more remote and inaccessible places.
