Bl. Alberto Marvelli, Oct. 5


An avid bicycler, he used his bike to carry donations to the poor. During World War II, Alberto rescued those being deported by the Nazis to concentration camps by breaking open the locked rail cars to let the prisoners free. On October 5, 1946, while riding his bicycle, Alberto was struck and killed by an Army truck.
