Feast of St. Anthony Zaccaria - Exclusive Interview Available in Honor of St. Zaccaria

Today we celebrate the life of St. Anthony Zaccaria. See my posting from last year for a brief biography of this saint and holy words written by this saint.

St. Anthony Zaccaria is the the founder of the Barnabite Fathers, the Angelic Sisters, and the Laity of St. Paul. In honor of his feastday, A Catholic Life has conducted an interview with Fr. Robert B. Kosek, CRSP. Through A Catholic Life's Partnership with Fr. Kosek's blog Saint Anthony Mary Zaccaria, three articles have be written in honor of this saintly man for his feastday. 

Please see the articles linked above, written by Sr. Rorivic Ma. P. Israel, ASSP and Mary Gambino.

Dear Matthew,
Greetings in the Lord!
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that I am submitting three articles as per your request dated June 25, 2009. The articles are the reply to the two questions you posed, namely:
1. How does the life and example of St. Anthony Zaccaria help the average Catholic in living a more Catholic life?

2. How does the life and vocation of St. Anthony Zaccaria inspire priestly and religious vocations?
On this occasion I have asked a religious sister a member of the Angelic Sister of St. Paul Congregation to address the two questions and a member of the Laity of St. Paul to address the first question.
I hope that your Readers will find them interesting and informative. I want to thank you again for your gracious invitation to your Blogs to interact with Catholics and Christians who seek for solid spirituality. It is very encouraging to see lay faithful people like yourself working as an arduous disciple in the Lord’s vineyard.
Matthew thank you for your example.
I want to assure you of my prayers in your intentions.
Yours in the Lord,
Fr. Robert B. Kosek, CRSP
P.S. I hope that we will continue our apostolic cooperation.


Make us, O Lord God, learn in the spirit of Paul the Apostle the knowledge of Jesus Christ which surpasseth all understanding, wherein blessed Anthony Mary was marvelously versed and formed in Thy Church new religious congregations of men and women. Through the same our Lord.
