From Friday, February 22 to Sunday, March 3, two first-class relics will travel from the Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua, Italy, to the Diocese of Savannah. One of the relics is the saint’s floating rib, which was venerated by both then-Archbishop Jorge Maria Bergoglio, (now Pope Francis) in the Cathedral of Buenos Aires in the year 2000 and by Sister Lucia of Fatima in her convent in Coimbra, Portugal, in 1995, the 800th anniversary of St. Anthony’s birth. The relics will be brought by Friar Bortolino Maistrello, OFM Conv..

In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth didn’t have any form.

 

Over the course of six days, God formed the earth and created everything on it. And at the end of each day’s work, he saw that all he created was good.

 

On the first day, God said, “Let there be light.” He separated the darkness from the light, calling the light “day” and the darkness “night.”

 

“Let there be a dome in the middle of the waters, to separate one body of water from the other,” God said on the second day. He called the dome “the sky.”
