  • I am a grandmother with a little grand-son of two whom I have trusted to St. Anthony of Padua. I am writing to you because I am afraid of living in the degradation of this civilization, where every day we are seeing that nothing is sure  or  secure,  except death. I fear for my family and above all for my little grand-son. What future will he have? Will he reach the goal that God has prepared for him safe and sound? Very often I stop to look at his little face and his sweet eyes, and here I see a little angel that splendidly smiles, I think that no body should ever put out that “divine” light that small children still have.

  • I have often noticed a sort of levity in quite a number of people while taking the Eucharist at church. I have frequently seen some chatting soon before and soon after that very special moment during which you should respect silence. I saw people wave hello as if they had just met on the market square, and I’ve got the feeling that the celebrant don’t even reprimand such misbehaviours. Yet, I think that it is a grave offense to Jesus.


  • The figures of the saints I have always loved exhort us to confession very often. But how can I make a good confession without remaining in doubt?

    R. G.


  • I frequently attend the parish and I have a warm relationship of friendship with my priest; I consider him to be a sensible person and a good spiritual guide. Yet, when we follow Mass and come to the sermon... I must be very forbearing. Is it possible that a sermon must always be so long and so far from our daily living? At times I feel tempted to lift up my hand and say: “alright, that’s enough for today”, but I realise that it would be a silly thing to do. There is not a great difference in the other nearby parishes... But is it so difficult to offer the Word of God with simple careful thoughts, that are above all connected to the problems of our daily lives, rather than lots of big theological words whose meaning is difficult to understand?
