    [Catholic Caucus] Padre Pio and the Seminarian’s Guardian Angel Padre Pio with Father Jean DerobertThe French writer, Yves Chiron, in his biography, cites the case of an American soldier, upon landing in Italy [during the Second World War]. This Catholic man was black and hailed from New York. In terms of English he only spoke the Harlem slang-dialect, incomprehensible to anyone who had not grown up up in that black neighborhood. As soon as the soldier knelt before Padre Pio, the Friar began speaking this slang as if he had done so all his life. But Padre Pio possessed...

    [Catholic Caucus] Saint Called Vatican II “Time of Darkness”Before the end of Vatican II, in February 1965, someone announced to Padre Pio that a eucharist would soon be presided according to a New Rite, ad experimentum, in the vernacular, a rite that had been composed by a liturgical commission to respond to the “inspirations of modern man.”Padre Pio immediately wrote to Paul VI, even before he had seen the text, to ask him to be dispensed from this liturgical experiment and to be allowed to continue celebrating Mass.When Cardinal Antonio Bacci (+1971) came to visit him to bring him the...

    September 23, 2020 Memorial of Saint Pius of Pietrelcina, Priest Reading 1 PRV 30:5-9 Every word of God is tested; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Add nothing to his words, lest he reprove you, and you will be exposed as a deceiver. Two things I ask of you, deny them not to me before I die: Put falsehood and lying far from me, give me neither poverty nor riches; provide me only with the food I need; Lest, being full, I deny you, saying, “Who is the LORD?” Or, being in want, I steal,...

    The stigmata saint’s stark warning, amid signs that some in the Church are losing, or perhaps never had, a horror for such a grave sin. The decision to have the notorious abortionist Emma Bonino speak about immigration in an Italian church last week drew widespread condemnation. ... “Today you denied absolution to a woman because she had voluntarily undergone an abortion. Why have you been so rigorous with this poor unfortunate?” (Padre Pio would sometimes refuse to give absolution to a penitent if they showed insufficient contrition; often they would return and he’d give absolution if they were sincere). Padre...

    Your Love is Lifting Me Higher – A Homily for the Fourth Sunday of Lent By: Msgr. Charles PopeThe readings in today’s Mass speak to us of our desperate condition, and how God’s abiding love has not only set us free, but also lifted us higher. God was not content to restore us to some earthy garden, paradise though it was. No, he has so loved the world that he sent his Son who has opened heaven itself for us and given us a new, transformed and eternal life.Let's look at some of the themes and ponder that God works...

    FULL TITLE: Was the angel of Highway 19 the saint Padre Pio? Catholics suggest that the priest who's been dead for 45 years appeared at crash scene to bless and save life of teen victim Five days on, the identity of the guardian angel priest of Missouri's Highway 19 remains as mysterious as his appearance on the roadside was miraculous. Friends and family of Katie Lentz, along with rescue workers still want to thank the unidentified man whose prayers they credit with bestowing a supernatural calm as EMT's battled to cut the Illinois teen from her mangled car wreck. But...

    National Catholic Reporter ^ | 6/14/2002 | John L. Allen
    This week all eyes are on Dallas, where the U.S. bishops will try to round a corner on the sexual abuse crisis that broke anew in Boston in December. It’s not just the U.S. that will be watching. Here in Rome curial officials are also paying close attention, knowing that whatever the American bishops do will be widely influential around the world. I happened to share a plane ride last Saturday with Belgian Cardinal Jan Schotte, a very influential figure in this pontificate who runs the Synod of Bishops. I had been in Chicago giving a talk at the Religion...

Josemaría Escrivá National Catholic Register 1.13.01-1.19.01 by ANDREW WALTHER Register Correspondent SAN GIOVANNI ROTONDO, Italy - Although he died in 1968, the popularity of Padre Pio - a stigmatist, reader of souls, mystic soon to be declared a saint - has grown over the years. In fact, this simple Capuchin friar is so well known that more pilgrims journey to the small town of San Giovanni Rotondo every year than to Fatima, Lourdes, or any other shrine ...

    St. Pio Of Pietrelcina, 1887-1968 By Fr. Armand Dasseville, O.F.M. Cap.   God often blesses some men or women in a very special way. He bestows upon one or more of his faithful servants extraordinary graces and gifts. These servants of God shine like lights. They are radiant in virtue and perform edifying actions that serve to mirror Christ and encourage the faithful to greater efforts toward sanctity. The purpose of these gifts is to spread the Kingdom of God by rescuing sinners from the grip of Satan and by restoring all things in Christ. In our day and age such...

    The Angelus Magazine | May 1999 | Fr. Jean, OFM Cap
    Padre Pio (May 25, 1887 - September 23, 1968) was beatified on May 2, 1999, and canonised on June 16, 2002 by Pope John Paul II. He is the only priest known to have received the full stigmata. He never celebrated the Novus Ordo Missae. The final year of this dying, decaying century will see the beatification of Padre Pio, the holy monk whom God sent as a sign for our age. For, while everyone wants to make us believe in a new "charismatic" Church, strangely we do not find there any wonderworking saints like the ones we meet throughout...

Pope John Paul ( news - web sites) formally declared his sainthood on Sunday at a solemn ceremony attended by hundreds of thousands in a sweltering St. Peter's Square and watched on screen by millions in Italy and around the world.

    VATICAN CITY, Jun 16, 2002 (AP Online via COMTEX) -- Struggling against wilting heat, Pope John Paul II declared the mystic 20th century monk Padre Pio a saint on Sunday to wild cheers from one of the Vatican's biggest crowds ever - hundreds of thousands of pilgrims who jammed St. Peter's Square and the nearby streets. Many pilgrims arrived hours before the 10 a.m. ceremony to secure a seat. They waited as the temperature climbed toward a forecast 91 degrees and high humidity made the air suffocatingly heavy. As the pope began reciting opening prayers, paramedics carried out at...
  • St. Padre Pio, Humanae Vitae, and Mandatory Abortion

    In the light of the Humanae Vitae’s other accurate predictions, are mandatory birth control and abortion on the horizon for America? St. Padre Pio demonstrated the depth of his love and loyalty to the Church when he publicly praised and defended Pope Paul VI for his encyclical Humanae Vitae, “Of Human Life.” 1 Upon its release in the summer of 1968, a torrent of vilification and disobedience was unleashed upon the Pontiff from within the Church, as well as mockery and scorn from without. Such open rebellion against Peter’s successor was unprecedented, and yet he had done nothing more than...

    Padre Pio, Priest and Victim By Father Markon September 22, 2008 11:05 PM By Monsignor Arthur Burton Calkins I. The Crisis of Identity in the PriesthoodAlmost immediately after the Second Vatican Council, a terrible identity crisis of enormous proportions began to overtake the Catholic priesthood and thousands of priests left the active ministry with or without the requisite permission. Still others became genuinely confused about the nature of their priesthood. Unfortunately, the disorientation still remains in many ways. Its causes, no doubt, are quite complex and ultimately we must confess that "An enemy has done this" (Mt. 13:28).But recognizing...
