In 1877 Fr. Gregorio, after having completed his responsibility for the friars, was able to return to the Institute of Gemona. He resumed to dedicating himself to the sisters, sustaining them in their vocation and missionary commitment. Unfortunately, there is always the economic problem that worries him. To avoid sending them back to the family, he consulted the Minister General, applied simple but effective strategies: he gave them the government pension staff or other compensation and appealed to the generosity of friendly people. With the weapons of faith and with lucid reasoning he worked to obtain medicines for the sick nuns. Providence came to him in the form of Dr Gaetano Ambrosioni, former personal physician of the Duchess, who will be her faithful friend and prodigal benefactor until the end.
Fr. Gregory also undertook to study the possibility of other foundations abroad, in both Western and Eastern territories, because of economic insecurity even the Constitutions were still lacking approval. But Fr. Gregorio does not give up. Among other things, he also responsible for the drafting of an important document: the Historical Memories of the Institute. It is a work of incalculable value, both as a testimony of his heroic donation to the Lord’s cause, and as a historical monument to the knowledge of the Institute he founded.
Unfortunately, although he is not yet in his sixties, his health gives him some problems, but he does not worry so much about postponing any necessary treatment. The sisters, however, when they meet him in the cloisters of the monastery with an uncertain step, note fearfully his slow decline and worry about their "beloved father". (Cfr. M.
