By Fr. Charles Saw, SDB
Superior of the Myanmar Vice-province MYM


Anisakan, Myanmar, 11 June 2017 -- I'm writing this important letter on the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity to all Salesian Confreres, the Salesian Family members and all who knew Fr. Fortunato Giacomin, SDB (1920-2000).


After much prayer and discernment made by all the Confreres and the Salesian Family, the Provincial Council has unanimously decided to start the Canonization process for Fr. Fortunato Giacomin, who died in the odour of Sanctity in 2000.


The inspiration and the animation flame began with the Extraordinary Visitation (August 2016).... His Eminence Card. Charles Bo and his novice companion Fr. Edward Sein Myint shared the same opinion: they lived with him from their young days till his death. They saw the man-of-God in him. There are many other archbishops, bishops, Salesians priests, religioius and lay people who have known and lived with him and admired his sanctity during his life time. They have a lot to say about this holy man of God. With all these voices coming to us, we cannot but start the Cause of Canonization for Fr. Fortunato Giacomin...


With the unanimous consent of my Council, I have appointed Fr. Joachim Ye Maung as the 'in charge of the preliminary stage of the cause' for Fr. Fortunato Giacomin. He will write you and ask for your cooperation in this holy and delicate task regarding the virtue and holiness of Fr. Fortunato Giacomin.


May the 'Holy Trinity' who is the cause of holiness, inspire us and direct us to reveal to us the depth of the sanctity of Fr. Fortunato Giacomin.

    Bài viết của Cha Charles Saw, Bề Trên Á tỉnh Myanmar.

    Anisakan, Myanmar 11/06/2017. Tôi viết lá thư này gửi đến các anh em SDB, các thành phần trong gia đình Sa-lê-diêng và tất cả những ai đã từng quen biết Cha Fortunato Giacomin (1920-2000).

    Sau thời gian cầu nguyện và cân nhắc kỹ lưỡng cùng với các anh em SDB và toàn thể gia đình Sa-lê-diêng, ban Cố vấn Á tỉnh đã đồng thuận để bắt đầu khai mở tiến trình xin phong  thánh cho Cha Giacomin, vị linh mục Sa-lê-diêng đã chết rất thánh thiện vào năm 2000.

    Quyết định này đã được khởi hứng từ cuộc kinh lý ngoại thường tại Á tỉnh vào năm 2016. Trong dịp kinh lý ấy, Đức Hồng Y Charles Bo, SDB cùng với Cha Edward Sein Myint (bạn nhà tập với Ngài) đã chia sẻ ý kiến và nói rằng : “Chúng tôi đã sống với Cha Giacomin từ lúc Ngài còn rất trẻ cho tới lúc Ngài qua đời. Chúng tôi cảm nhận sự thánh thiện rõ nét nơi cuộc sống của Cha Giacomin  như một người của Chúa”. Ngoài ra, còn nhiều vị Tổng Giám mục, các Giám mục, các linh mục Sa-lê-diêng, các tu sĩ và nhiều người đời đã từng biết Cha Giacomin và rất ấn tượng về cuộc sống thánh thiện nơi Ngài. Các vị đó nói rất nhiều về sự thánh thiện của vị linh mục Sa-lê-diêng mà các vị đã từng quen biết.

    Với những chứng từ đó, Á tỉnh Myanmar quyết định khai mở hồ sơ xin phong thánh cho Cha Giacomin. Với sự đồng thuận của Ban Cố vấn Á tỉnh, tôi bổ nhiệm Cha Joachim Ye Maung phụ trách công việc này trong giai đoạn khai mở hồ sơ bước ban đầu.

    Tôi viết lá thư này để xin các anh chị em Sa-lê-diêng và những người quen biết cùng cộng tác với chúng tôi xúc tiến công việc này một cách tốt đẹp.

    Xin Chúa Ba Ngôi hướng dẫn chúng ta, để chúng ta khám phá ra sự thánh thiện sâu xa nơi Cha Fortunato Giacomin.

    Fr. Fortunato Giacomin:
    Born at Fonsaso (Belluno – Italy) on 3 January 1920, comes to India in 1936, makes his first profession at Bandel on 8 December 1937. In February 1940 he leaves for Burma. He is ordained a priest at Dehra Dun Concentration Camp on 20 September 1945. In December 1945 he leaves the Concentration Camp and returns to Burma and there he remains till the end of his life. He dies on 7 February 2000 .
    In Father Giacomin the delegation of Burma loses a valiant missionary, who sacrifices everything for the sake of the Salesian Mission in Burma. He keeps the Salesian dream alive in Burma when everything seems lost. He works in different roles for many years (not continually) at Mandalay, Lafon Memorial School. He is Rector and parish priest at Thyngangyum, In 1965 he is the founder Rector of St. Joseph's Studentate at Anisakan, where he continues till the end of his life fulfilling various roles as need arises. When 8 of the foreign Salesians are expelled in 1966, only Fr. Giacomin and Fr. James Bertolino escape the expulsion order. Later on, however, Fr. Bertolino returns to Italy due to ill health. Thus Fr. Giacomin becomes the main link with the beginnings of Salesian works in Burma and with the outside Salesian world. Till 1975 he is Rector, teacher, inspirer, spiritual guide.
    In the later years of his life at Anisakan he is teacher, confessor and spiritual director. He is intelligent, dedicated to his work, a man of prayer and an example to all of living the Salesian motto, "Work and Temperance." He is constantly inculcating to all with his example and with his insistence in season and out of season Salesian values, such as, love for Don Bosco and the Congregation, faithful observance of the Constitutions, the practice of the Preventive System and Salesian assistance
