Don Aldo Brunacci esteemed Dean of Assisi, was also honoured to be included among "The Righteous of Israel", together with the Bishop (Benedictine Abbot) Giuseppe Placido Nicolini of Assisi, who organized the work of aid for the persecuted Jews. In more recent times he also worked to help the small Community Families of Bethlehem founded by Marcello Ciai, who when he was young, just by the Bishop Nicolini had received his first communion and had been confirmed.
Don Aldo also went to the Community of Marcello to celebrate the Holy Mass in a time of difficult relations with the Church; he gave to Marcello, whom he called "the prophet", the "Pastoral Rule" of St.Gregory the Great, together with other books of the great Pope that the Spirit of the Lord had mysteriously suggested Marcello to read; so he was enabled to consolidate his prophetic vocation.
