San Cesare de Bus died on Easter night, April 15, 1607, and his last words were: «Tomorrow is Easter, for me it will be twice!!», announcing his encounter with God. Almost always the anniversary of the his death coincides with the Easter season and, this year, during the Easter octave. The celebration of the feast has therefore been postponed to April 17th. In Pontecorvo the community of San Marco gathered in prayer and took part in the renewal of the vows of the doctrinal fathers Nicolas Banyikwa and Charles Bitariho and father Nicolas, in his homily, recalled how San Cesare was a great herald of Christian Doctrine and that he believed that it was not enough to make known the Gospel and the works of Jesus, but to be witnesses by becoming “a living catechism”.
