  • I share with those who report that here we do not come so much for artistic beauties, but for the devotion to this great saint who has done so much for Torino and that the Cottolenghini (religious and volunteers) continue to do for all the weak groups. Only the artistic aspect remains inside perhaps the most beautiful nineteenth-century church in the city with the great crucifix above the altar that, curiously, does not have the wound of the spear of Loninus on the side. Opening hours are pretty tight.

  • It is the church where the Blessed Saint Cottolengo rests who created the gigantic and functioning structures to help the weakest; The church has an almost non-existent façade, narrow in the long frame of buildings for hospitality; As soon as you enter the entrance you are amazed at everything that appears before your eyes; Small area of entrance with beautiful marbles and immediately to the right the chapel of Santo Cottolengo with the sisters who watch and pray; Then we enter the great church that shines with marbles, tall and slender columns to divide the aisles, and frescoes on the lateral walls; Very high central vault and large organ in Counterfacade... And several white nuns praying.

  • The Church of Santi Antonio Abate and Vincenzo de ' Paoli is inside the small house of Divine Providence, Institute of Charity founded in Turin in 1832 by San Giuseppe Cottolengo (Bra * 3 May 1786-Chieri + 30 April 1842) Benefactors Fratelli Farinelli built the primitive hospital with a dedicated church "Divis Antonio Abbati ac Vincentio a Paulo" which was consecrated on October 5, 1834, and was donated to the Cottolengo in 1837. The primitive church, corresponding to the roundabout entrance, which is accessed from the entrance, in neoclassical style, via San Pietro in constraints, was progressively enlarged: In 1842 the Chapel of the Rosary was built, in 1896 Canon Giuseppe Anglesio entrusted the extension of the Church to the architect Vincenzo Capuccio, who designed the present form of Basilica in the eclectic Romanesque-Lombard style, with three aises and four bays, with Matroneum and Ambulatory, Some elements in neogothic style are present in the apse and in the side chapels, and we also see some hints of neo-Baroque style in the chapel dedicated to St. Joseph Cottolengo. The stained glass windows of the chapels are the work of Maestro Enrico Reffo. The church was consecrated on 23 April 1898. The crucifix on the high altar particularly confirms the cottolenghine faith and spirituality; The agonizing Christ has his eyes and mouth open, thus representing all the words of Jesus spoken on the cross and also the painful mystery: "... He uttered a high cry, Spiró "(Mt 27.50-Mk 15.37) Therefore, exhorting all of us to always recognize the face of Christ in every suffering human being, To hear every cry of pain by concretely making us one next of the other And to confirm that any work has been accomplished in the world of Charity and Mercy, both corporal and spiritual, It is a particular manifestation of the love of God that descends upon us, And it is also a material proof of our love offered to God. Our sisters and brothers of Cottolengo thus live the Gospel message: "Everything you did to one of the younger brothers, you did it to Me..." (Mt 25.40) During the extraordinary jubilee of 2015/16 in the Archdiocese of Turin, in addition to the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, only this church had the privilege to open the "Holy Gate" for plenary indulgence; This holy door in this church built in our earthly reality symbolizes a fundamental passage towards the remission of sins and salvation: And the Crucifix and the holy door together remind us that God has opened to us all the door of heaven, incarnating, preaching and suffering an abyss of sorrow and anguish for the love of all mankind; Let us Open the door of our hearts to our neighbour; This passage in our journey of life, which can bring us into the Kingdom of heaven, just as the Holy Gate allows us to enter the Church, the House of God, It is the work of loving charity, a reflection of Divine mercy, That we offered to our neighbor. Our visit to the Church of Santi Antonio Abate and Vincenzo de ' Paoli proposes this particular meditation on the promise that Christ made us in Mt 25.40 (all that you have done... You did it to Me...) And the Mysteries of pain This meditation, with the help of the Lord, is transformed into a concrete commitment in our lives to overcome our fears, closures and repulsions to meet our Lord Jesus Christ, always recognizing a significant aspect of his divine presence In suffering humanity. "I am the door of heaven, if any one enters through me will be saved" (Jn 10.9)
