Fr. Blancal (1826-1905) was a very controversial figure. A brilliant and ambitious personality, he was in constant conflict with Fr. Dehon. Fr. Dehon accepted him as he was. Blancal died in the arms of Fr. Dehon.
A new collaboration began between SettimanaNews and the African magazine J’écris, je crie – in whose editorial staff there are also Dehonian confreres, who inspired its birth. A cultural and information synergy suggested with conviction by the superior general of the Congregation Fr. Carlos Suarez.
Fr. Barnabas (Claudius) Charcosset (1848-1912) was a very spiritual priest but at the same time very engaged in social and pastoral life. He became general counselor and assistant general.
Fr. Sacerdos (Alexander) de Pascal was Fr. Dehon's friend, but he left the congregation after "Consummatus est" (April 22, 1884).
Fr. Claudius (Albert) Lobbé was pastor and general councilor. He was one of the most tenacious opponents of Fr. Dehon during the 1893 and 1896 general chapters.
