Archbishop Peter A Comensoli
Just inside the left entrance to the great Roman Basilica of St Paul’s Outside the Walls, beneath the floor, is the old cemetery for the Benedictine monks who once lived in the community there. One of those buried there is Francis Xavier Comaci, a young aboriginal lad who had come the community from New Norcia as a novice. Comaci’s life was a sad one, as he felt the loss of his ancestral life and lands acutely, dying separated from his homeland in 1853, at perhaps 11 years of age.
