"Anima una et cor unum in Deum!" (Regula)

Thought of Saint Augustine
Do not despair, you who are blind. Come close to him, and you will be healed. You who are blind, come close to him and you will be illuminated.
Man himself, so much admired, is a great mystery.
(Sermo 126, 4)
To have a good idea of God is the truest beginning of piety.
(De libero arbitrio I, 2,5)

Father Prospero's colleague, Msgr. Giuseppe Versaldi, likewise a Cardinal-designate, who was recently named President of the Prefecture of Economic Affairs of the Holy See, will be the principal consecrator. Co-consecrators are Msgr. Paul Cremona OP, Archbishop of Malta and Msgr. Mario Grech, Bishop of Gozo. The Concistory during which the future Msgr. Prospero and Msgr. Versaldi will become Cardinals is to be held on the morning of Saturday, February 18, in Saint Peter's Basilica.
