Celebrate Easter with the friars of the Basilica of Saint Anthony!

This year Easter is further enlightened by our beloved Pope Francis’ letter to the Youth of the World that he delivered at the end of the Synod of Bishops.

Highlighting the problems, the difficulties, the contradictions we are experiencing, he wrote:

"I remind you of the good news that was given to us on the morning of the Resurrection: that in all the dark and painful situations we experience there is always a way out ... Don't let hope and joy be stolen from you".

Once again we are united by the power of love, a love that goes beyond our limits and our fears.

Happy Easter from the friars of the Basilica to all those who work with us to spread the Gospel of Love and the teachings of Saint Anthony by supporting our missionary works in the poorest countries of the world.
