PUGLIA, Italy - On Sunday, July 5, 2020, Cardinal Fernando Filoni, Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre, celebrated his 50 years of priesthood, in his hometown Galatone, Puglia in Italy, in the presence of H.E. Cardinal Salvatore De Giorgi, and Archbishop Michele Seccia, surrounded by relatives, friends and local religious, civil and military authorities.

In his homily, Cardinal Feloni said: “From the time of his preparation for the sacred ministry, a priest knows well that he always has two primary tasks before him; the first is his dedication to the Most High... The second, alongside the same commitment, is the exercise of pastoral charity, that is, service to one's neighbor and to those whom the Lord will entrust to him and he will meet on his way.”
