Basilica del Santo almost intact

From Cantuale Antonianum (in our sidebar): despite reports to the contrary, this morning's earthquake in Northeast Italy has left only very minor damage, apparently, in the Basilica of Saint Anthony, in Padua - the image is of the only damage noticed in the building.

It is the latest of several stronger than usual quakes to hit northern Italy in the past few weeks - fifteen people died in today's event (requiescant in pace).


  1. The devil is trembling with fear in Italy :P.

    Hardly, since he has most of it in his grasp.
    He will only tremble when the Pope consecrates Russia and the when the army of the Most Holy Virgin begins to crush his legions.
