Immediately after the death of St. Paul of the Cross on 18th October 1775, his successor and the second Superior General of the Passionists, Father John Baptist Gorresio sent a document to the Passionists detailing the final sickness and death of the Founder.

This English document originally appeared in The Passionist Magazine in 1954 as a translation in English from the original Italian.
