October 4-14, 2018 Saint Anthony's Relics visit USA

This coming October from 4 to 14 Fr. Mario Conte, executive editor of the «Messenger of Saint Anthony» magazine, will bring to the United States of America two precious relics of our Saint from the Basilica in Padua. One of these reliquaries contains the Saint’s floating rib.

This is the very same reliquary that was used by then-Archbishop Bergoglio to bless the faithful after the Solemn Mass at the Catedral Metropolitana in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 30 April 2000. 

The same reliquary had been kissed five years earlier by Sister Lucia of Fatima when it was taken to the nuns at the Monastery of Carmelite sisters in Coimbra, Portugal, in January 1995, during the commemorations for the 800th anniversary of the Saint’s birth.
