As a good pastor, Fr. Riccardo uses sacred Scripture to offer wise guidance on how to answer the universal call to holiness affirmed by the Second Vatican Council. That call, he eloquently explains, is at its heart an invitation from God the Father to join his Son, Jesus in living the life of heaven even now.
