I’m reading H.V. Morton’s A Traveller in Italy. ”Reading” is not quite the word, though. ”Relishing” is more like it. Just like a trip there, I really don’t want it to end.
Oddly, I hit the small section on Padua, and St. Anthony, today – on his feast.
No fish to preach to.
But perhaps they might as well be?
The man who is filled with the Holy Spirit speaks in different languages. These different languages are different ways of witnessing to Christ, such as humility, poverty, patience and obedience; we speak in those languages when we reveal in ourselves these virtues to others. (Sermon of St. Anthony. Office of Readings, 6/13)
