Holy Eucharist at the Tomb of Padre Pio

Yesterday evening I was privileged and fortunate to offer Mass at 4pm at the tomb of Padre Pio with around 50 faithful. Being the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe i was asked to preach a short which i did in Italian. Oh, It was a holy and spiritual experience for me. The snow outside and the beautiful interiors of the chapel made me to lift my spirit and soul to the Almighty God.
This morning i was asked to offer Eucharist for the Clarists sisters who have a monastery right top on the Hill. It was a beautiful panorama as the hill is covered with snow. There are about 12 sisters in the monastery most of them are latin americans. They sing like angels with sweet melodies voices accompanied by instruments. Today is the feast of St. Lucy, so a small homily i preached to the sisters. After the Mass i joined them for the morning prayers and followed by breakfast. The sisters had a lot of questions to ask me. They said that i was the first Indian Capuchin to celebrate Mass for them.
At 11.30am there was another Eucharist in the new church which once again i celebrated. This mass is live telecast throughout the world. I preached the same homily here too but short one.
Today the sun is shining and it is quite pleasant but outside it is very cold.
