Italian Priest Dies After Giving Ventilator To a Younger Coronavirus Patient

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”



An account of an Italian Catholic priest diagnosed with coronavirus who died after giving up a ventilator to a younger patient began surfacing on Twitter on Monday morning.

Don Giuseppe Berardelli was a 72-year old Catholic priest of the Diocese of Bergamo, a city near Milan in the Lombardy region of northern Italy. His parish bought him a ventilator when he was diagnosed with the Chinese coronavirus disease, which is currently ravaging northern Italy more so than any place on Earth.

However, reports indicate Father Berardelli went on to give use of the ventilator a a younger coronavirus patient. He died within the past few days without use of the ventilator, giving up his life so that another person- someone he did not even know- could live.

Italian media corroborates the story, which began surfacing on English-language Twitter Monday.

One famous saying of Christ in the Gospel of John describes the greatest form of love in the Christian religion. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” Certainly, Father Berardelli’s actions are strongly reminiscent of this teaching of Jesus.

Italy continues to incur devastating daily coronavirus casualties. Deaths in the country from the disease have far surpassed that seen in the virus’ place of origin in China.

At least 28 Catholic Priests such as Father Berardelli have already been confirmed to die of the coronavirus.

Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts

The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.



The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.

In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”

Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”

The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:

After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.

Toccalini concluded:

Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.

Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
