Meditate with Fr. Mario

Fr. Mario's meditation for Pentecost

On Sunday, May 15th we will be celebrating Pentecost, the day when the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles. 

In this video Fr. Mario Conte, editor of the «Messenger of Saint Anthony» magazine, explains that something similar to the miraculous event of the Pentecost occurred in the life of St. Anthony, when he preached in Rome in front of the pope and cardinals. Inflamed by the Holy Spirit, Anthony preached so effectively that even if they all spoke different languages, they understood his words. And the Pope was so astonished that he said: “He is truly the Arc of the Covenant and the treasury of Holy Scripture”.

The gift of the Holy Spirit has been bestowed upon each one of us, let us therefore try to lead a life of authentic faith, devoting ourselves to works of justice, peace and active charity.
