Biagio Conte, the greeting and the appeal I ask you to pray

#Biagio #Conte #greeting #appeal #pray

The message of the lay missionary from the hospital.


“Brother Biagio is still hospitalized and continues to ask for prayer.
A cycle of therapies will begin on Monday.
Brother Biagio thanks those who are praying for him in this period.
Thanks also to the few who, with the necessary authorizations and as representatives, went to visit him in the hospital such as the Bishop of Palermo, Mons.Corrado Lorefice, Cardinal Romeo and the new mayor of Palermo.
In recent days, a thought of gratitude goes in particular to the Muslim community of Palermo which last Friday gathered in prayer for Brother Biagio and for all the sick.
The community then went to visit Brother Biagio through the Imam of the Mosque of the Grand Chancellor of Palermo, dr.
Bedri El Maddeni.
It was a meeting of intense humanity and brotherhood that heartened Brother Biagio so much that, for this very reason, he was so keen to give public thanks.
We continue to pray.
Peace and Hope to all ”.

A ray of sunshine, in the form of a post on the page of the Mission ‘Hope and Charity’, comes from the hospital where Biagio Conte is hospitalized.
The initiation of therapies is confirmed.
Many are gathering around him. In the picture, the imam of Palermo and Don Pino, traveling companion of his missionary work.
The affection of the Muslim community is the response to a man in a habit who has never placed barriers of any kind between himself and others, who has built roads in common, as long as there was mutual sincerity and the search for truth.

Monday, therefore, as we had written, the therapies should begin, after the results of the last tests.
The situation is difficult.
But Brother Biagio is in the hands of an excellent medical and nursing team.
Everything that needs to be done will be done.
He, from his bed in the ward, renews the appeal: “Let’s continue to pray”.
