Actually it is no wonder, that during the year of mercy Father Antonello Cadedu, accompanied by three persons from the Roman Catholic community Alliance of Mercy, which he along with his community brothers P. Enrico Portu and Maria Paola founded in Sao Paulo. The community was officially recognized as a private faith association by Cardinal Claudio Hummes.
The community has currently 250 members (priests, lay people, celibate men and women and married couples) as well as a further 900 lay people in 33 Brazilian states. Further members are spread amongst 350 houses located in France, Belgium, Portugal and Poland etc. Perhaps it is really a wonder? I will leave the answer to you.
The community expresses the merciful love of God to the poorest of the poor and as children of God; they evangelize by connecting the proclamation with their witness of charity to the lost sheep. The members live amongst the poor and for the poor.
Holy Faustina Kowalska and Holy John Paul II are key figures for the Community and its members live according to the philosophy and experiences of these holy people.
A meeting with such charismatics is not only a religious “fireworks display”, Father Antonello preaches the Gospel, the good news in the power of the Holy Spirit and is accompanied by the signs that we read about in the stories of the Apostles. The Apostles preached the Gospel with great power. As they lay on hands they were filled with the Holy Spirit. It is written that as Peter of Kerygma spoke, a few thousand people converted there and then. Before Peter’s next sermon Jesus Christ made him a healer of the lame.
For many priest, bishops and believers, Antonello is a witness to the faith and is someone with a deep relationship to Jesus. He often travels to Europe; to Poland to preach the Gospel and to call on the Holy Spirit to move hearts, to convert and to heal.
When he preaches thousands of enthusiastic lay people, priests, deacons, believers and also just the curious, listen to him. Then the miracle happens. He has the people’s attention and those who were deaf to God until then become open to the good news and the salvation of Christ. We read in the Gospel that the masses followed Jesus because they witnessed such signs. The impact of the Holy Spirit enables people to develop a deep relationship with God. By showing some unusual and extraordinary signs, people are given the opportunity to experience a living God who is interested in their lives and therefore, awakens in their hearts the wish to accept Jesus as their Lord.
Father Antonello will be accompanied by 4 persona from the “Allianca de Misericordia" in Brazil, who will give their testimonies. They will actively pray with us and support us.
