Happy Feast to Br. Pio Murat, General Councilor

 Our Br. Pio Murat celebrates his feast day today....whole community thanked God for his gift to the Order.....Like a Sun, may he keep shining....Sun rose in Turkey.....went around shining and settled in France...

 Friars listen to what is being spoken by the Guardian about Br. Pio....
 We are always there for you Br. Pio...

 Normally we have poems being recited on the occasion but today Br. Antonio Bielpiede preferred to sing a song.....Mama...Mama....everyone joined him...a popular song...
