The greatest gift you can give to the Church and to the world is holiness. The words of Saint John Paul II, on the 4th September 2004 during the homily on the occasion of the great CA meeting in Loreto, still ring in our hearts.
These words encourage us to live “up to the expectations”of the many CA witnesses who have gone before (cf Pope Francis 30 April 2017) and who accompany us in our everyday lives so as to be a CA school of holiness in our times.
The day when the Catholic Church celebrates the feast of All the Saints is the best day to share our joy with everyone.
• Spread via social media, print for the parish the mini POSTER where you can find 12 witnesses, among the many, who show us the right way to holiness which we are all called to follow, promoting in our earthly society a more humane way of life (cf LG 40).
At the centre of the miniposter B. Pier Giorgio Frassati, THEN from left to right S. Alberto Hurtado (Chile); Ven Armida Barelli – B. Giuseppe Toniolo – Ven Antonietta Meo – S.
