Merry Christmas from the friars of St. Anthony’s Basilica in Padua

Christmas greetings from Father Giancarlo Zamengo, director of the Messenger of Saint Anthony, on behalf of the friars of the Basilica

May this coming Christmas help us recover peace and inner harmony, which arise from the wonder and astonishment of discovering ourselves embraced by a warm hug from our Lord. He never tires of pointing out to us the path of dialogue, of self-giving and of love.

Let us entrust to Saint Anthony, singer of the mystery of the Incarnation, our desire to encounter our Lord through the path of simplicity, so that this Christmas you may not miss the opportunity of having someone embrace you with a warm hug, and so that you, in your turn, will not miss the opportunity of giving someone a hug full of tenderness and love.

Merry Christmas!
