Holy Easter 2018

The Resurrection did not close the holes made by the nails, nor heal Jesus’ wounds. This is because death and suffering are not accidents to be overcome: those wounds are the glory of God, the pinnacle of love, and will always remain open in the life of the world: in order to give meaning and value to every pain and suffering we have to deal with in our lives; to prevent us from feeling alone and forsaken; to find the strength, against all odds, to continue to love.

 

A blessed Easter to all of you, dear friends of St Anthony and of his friars, from the Basilica in Padua. We love you all.
