Words of Hope from Saint Padre Pio

Saint Padre Pio’s Words of Hope
Edited by: Eileen Dunn Bertanzetti,
submitted by Valerie Pavone, OFS

Live calmly and do not worry excessively,
because in order to work more freely in us,
the Holy Spirit needs tranquility and calm. 
And for you, every anxious thought is a mistake,
as you have no reason to fear. 
It is the Lord who works within you,
and you must do nothing except
leave the door of your heart wide open,
so that he might work as he pleases.
Throw yourself confidently
into the arms of your Heavenly Father
with childlike trust and open wide your heart
to the charism of the Holy Spirit,
who is only waiting for a sign from you
in order to enrich you.

Pax et bonum

Franciscan Service

     On Tuesday, April 26 we will again be fulfilling an ongoing apostolate of our fraternity, by serving supper at Holy Apostles Parish for those who live nearby.   We will be joining our sister fraternity, The Immaculate Heart of Mary Fraternity. 
Those of us who have participated in the past have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this outreach of Father Tony Mugavero and his parish volunteers to the neighborhood at large from the area surrounding the church.  More details will follow as we get closer to the date.

Pax et bonum
