If and when travel becomes possible, St. Athanasius’ body is reposed in Venice. He is over a side altar in a bunk-bed situation with… wait for it… Saint Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist. Not bad. I can only imagine that praying the Rosary with Saint Athanasius, and Saint Zechariah who was PRESENT AT THE SECOND JOYFUL MYSTERY, THE VISITATION, must be… powerful. Definitely something to put on the bucket list.
“In ancient times before the divine sojourn of the Savior took place, even to the saints death was terrible; all wept for the dead as though they perished. But now that the Savior has raised his body, death is no longer terrible; for all who believe in Christ trample on it as it were nothing and choose rather to die than deny their faith in Christ. And that devil that once maliciously exulted in death, now that its pains were loosed, remained the only one truly dead.”
