We, the Friars of the Basilica of Saint Anthony in Padua, are daily engaged in the task of practicing this great mission which the Saint has enjoined upon us: to spread the Gospel and to practice Charity.
Our bond with the Messenger of Saint Anthony magazine is of the strongest kind and is determined by the double mission that St. Anthony of Padua has enjoined upon us: to spread the Gospel and to perform works of charity.
Two sides of the same coin.
It is for this reason that the Messenger and St. Anthony’s Charities are really two sides of the same coin: one gives voice to the word of the Gospel and the other makes sure that our help reaches those who most need it. St. Anthony’s Charities, with its projects, aspects and stories, appears every month in the pages of the Messenger of Saint Anthony.
The connection between the solidarity organisation and its supporters.
The Messenger is therefore the connection between the solidarity organisation and its supporters. Through the Messenger, readers become promoters of development and liberation, the new way of applying the Gospel according to the teachings of St. Anthony.
