Dear Betania Family,
We are sorry to bear the sad news of the passing of our beloved brother Deacon Joseph Izzo, co-founder of Betania XI, who left this world and is lying in the hands of Our Heavenly Father since Saturday, November 12th, 2016, at 7:30 a.m.
His last hours were of profound communion with Our Lord and his Blessed Mother, through prayer and deep meditation.
His faithfulness to our beloved Catholic Church was a perfect example of that of a true Catholic; always smiling and quoting Scriptures in every daily situation with so much wisdom and knowledge.
May God grant him, through the intercession of our Servant of God Maria Esperanza, the entrance into Heaven with the angels, the saints and his beloved wife, to enjoy Paradise forever.
Dear brother Joe, exemplary friend, you will always be in our hearts and minds, because of the beautiful gift of the Communion of Saints! You can count on our daily prayers for you and your beloved family!
Geo Bianchini and family
