Saint Philip and Witnessing for Life
Today is the feast of Saint Philip Neri (+1595), the second Apostle of Rome, and the founder of the Oratory, whose houses are now found throughout the world (Bd. John Henry Newman brought the Oratory to England). As you may know from my brief biography, I lived and studied at the Toronto Oratory, and owe a great debt of gratitude to Saint Philip, and the Fathers and Brothers of his Oratory. May the joyful spirit of the great Saint of Rome, whose physical heart expanded to contain his great ‘fire of charity’ continue to inspire and convert many!
