It was 5 years ago when WAP did launch the idea to build a Catholic Church in the area of the Italian Base MZS, at Terra Nova Bay, Antarctica.
Recently during a pilgrimage to San Giovanni Rotondo at the grave of San Padre Pio, I noticed something that captured my attention. On the chapel at third floor of “Casa di Sollievo della Sofferenza” (this huge Hospital is one of the Miracles done by Padre Pio the holy Friar with the stigmata), there is al Altar surmounted by a big white wafer, which recalls Antarctica!
Compare the two images in this article: the one at left (the Altar at 3rs floor of the Casa di Sollievo della Sofferenza) and the one at right (Antarctica) and see how similar they are. Is it a sign? .. maybe it is…
We have never lost our hope , but I did pry San Padre Pio to help this dream to be materialized.
We strongly believe that one day, a great Cross will, stand up on our Catholic Church in Antarctica.
