Happy Birthday to Br. Ivan, Vice-General Secretary and Happy Feast of St. Michael, Raffaele and Gabriel....Arch-angels...


 The three archangels are the messengers of God in history: Michael, who is like God?, is the protector of people against the wiles of Satan. Gabriel, the power of God, is the one who announce the salvation of God, realised in the births of John the Baptist and Christ. Rafael, the medicine of God, is the traveling companion of Tobias and the doctor of his father. But, as Jesus said to Nathanael, the angels are heavenly witnesses of the Son of God. They are like a bridge between heaven, where the Son comes from, and earth, the place of the mission

 Br. Ivan who is celebrating his birthday today, presided over the Eucharist this morning....we prayed for him and his family......he prayed for all of us...especially me and Raffale ....celebrating our Feast days......

 He preaches well....a good short homily was the hallmark of today's eucharist......Ivan may God grant you long and healthy life...

 Friars listen to the homily .....preached with unction and devotion....

 The word of God broken and shared
