PASTORAL VISIT TO BRESCIA AND CONCESIO

BRIEF STOP AT THE PARISH CHURCH OF BOTTICINO SERA
AND VENERATION OF THE MORTAL REMAINS OF ST ARCANGELO TADINI

WORDS OF HIS HOLINESS BENEDICT XVI

Brescia
Sunday, 8 November 2009

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I am very happy to be in the Parish of St Tadini. I canonized him quite recently and I was edified by this figure of spiritual life who was at the same time a great personality in the social life of the 19th and 20th centuries. With his work he made a gift to humanity and invites all of us to love God, to love Christ, to love Our Lady and to communicate this love to others; to work so that a fraternal world may come into being in which each one lives not for himself but for others. Then I thank you for your warm welcome. It gives me great joy to see the Church alive and joyful here. I wish you a good Sunday and many good things. My best wishes and thanks to you!
