February - March 2017: Saint Anthony's Relics visit the USA, Bangladesh & India

The precious relics of our Saint will be in Austin, Texas (February 9 to 19), in Bangladesh (February 1 to 9) and in India (February 10 to March 15).

This month relics of Saint Anthony will be gracing various parts of the world. Our editor Fr. Mario is taking the ‘floating rib’ relic, the one that was venerated by Archbishop Bergoglio and by Sister Lucia of Fatima, to Austin in Texas, whereas Fr. Alessandro Ratti and Fr. Paolo Floretta, also from the Basilica, are taking other relics to Bangladesh and then to India. They will be helped by two Indian friars who reside in the Basilica: Fr. Steven and Fr. Justin. The visits are taking place according to the following tentative schedule that may be subject to change.

The Eucharistic and Veneration Services will be celebrated as follows:
