He was also a contributing writer to the «Messenger of Saint Anthony», published in Padua, Italy, a magazine for which he wrote a series of articles on the saintliness and spirituality of Saint Francis and Saint Anthony until his death on 19 August 2001.

Quarta di copertina
Saint Anthony of Padua deserves to be rediscovered as a saintly teacher for our time. To meets this need, in splendid fashion, Father Claude M. Jarmak, a Conventual Franciscan friar, responds in the pages of this book. He helps us know Saint Anthony through the Saint’s own words, sharing his profound and engaging reflections on the teachings of Jesus. This book is an aid for reflective prayer, a resource for preaching and teaching, and a reference for Franciscan spirituality, and much more. This is because Saint Anthony’s lively intellect and prayerful reading of the Gospel of Jesus open up fresh understanding of the parables and offer uplifting insights on topics which range from the Blessed Trinity through Mary, the Mother of God, to the means of holiness.
