P. Malachia Falletti, r.i.p.
The Certosa di Firenze has informed us that Don Malachia Falletti died at the age of 77. Deeply impressed by what he perceived to be happening at the Second Vatican Council, he then served as a participant in the General Chapter 1968/1969 und later (starting 1976) as a member of the Order's Liturgical Commission. He published in Italian on the Rule of St. Benedict and questions of monastic observance. The Certosa in Florence is one of several Carthusian houses in Italy which Cistercians have re-established in the 20th Century.
