Br. Raniero Cantalamessa - Friar, Preacher, Teacher and Writer

 On his 80th Birthday it is but fitting to make know this humble and simple brother of ours....we know him as a papal preacher but very many few know that he is a writer.....most of his books are translated in many languages.....the content of the book is very solid theological and spiritual teachings......
 He says it all in this book...if you don't have just grab a copy and Christmas is around the corner...it would be good idea to be a santa clause to our brothers presenting them Ranieros books.....

 Two more books ....you start reading and you just don't want to leave them.......
This is Br. Massimo, his companion (this morning Cantalamessa during the homily referred to him as his companion, actually he does all secretarial work).....you ask anything about Cantalamessa and Massimo has on his finger tips.....great friar under the holy shadow of Cantalamessa...smiles the whole day and never gets tired....does not believe in Theories but practical things..... 
 You know who this? Great singer......Andrea Bocciali....great friend of Cantalamessa....spiritual guide of Andrea.....He sang two years ago for the General Chapter....very good man....
