Novena to St Anthony 2019

St Anthony, Saint of Miracles - Yesterday, Today, Always. From today, 31 May to 12 June Fr Mario Conte, editorial director of the Messenger of Saint Anthony magazine, and one of the 52 friars who minister in the Basilica of Saint Anthony in Padua, Italy, will present 13 stories and reflections. They are true stories which were told to the friars in the Basilica of St Anthony by those who experienced them. They all have one thing in common: the intercession of St Anthony.

Fr Mario explains that Jesus' Resurrection is the light that follows the darkness of human failings. It is God's loving answer: "Every human being is born as a result of God's love, just like Jesus was.
