Australian Passionists visit Lucca

In October 2007 a group of Australian Passionists on pilgrimage in Italy visited the Shrine of St. Gemma Galgani in Lucca.  We were given a wonderful welcome by the Passionists Nuns. Two days in Lucca was not enough, it is a very beautiful town … we all want to return!

Of all the Passionist sites we visited during the pilrimage Lucca was special.  We were able to celebrate Mass in the Sanctuary, visit the house where St. Gemma was born, where she died and we celebrated Mass in the house where she received the Stigmata. Thanks to the Passionst Nuns at Lucca for their welcome and hospitality! The photo above shows the group of Australian Passionists – together with Father Ottaviano D’Edigio, C.P., the Passionist Superior General, and Father Paul Francis Spencer, C.P., our great tour guide, in the garden of the Passionist Monastery.
