Bookends for the two millenniums: St. Joseph and Padre Pio - strong, silent, and sanctifying.

    In this weekend's editorial we show the link between two great men - a link that spans 20 centuries, beginning with the first saint Saint Joseph and one of this centuries most cherished ones who will be beatified Sunday - Padre Pio. We also ask what is the agenda of the secular media who continue to fabricate the news and slant it, failing to give the Holy See any credit for progress made or the tremendous relief efforts for the refugees, much of it provided by sources with the Vatican. For this weekend's commentary, It wouldn't hurt to invoke the help of Blessed Padre Pio!, click on CATHOLIC PewPOINT.

A special interview with the facilitator of Padre Pio's cause

      In honor of this Capuchin who will be beatified Sunday, we present an interview provided by 'Fides' via ZENIT with Father Miguel Gonzalez who has been working for years towards his cause for beatification and he gives some special insight into both the man himself and the fervor of the people toward him.

Like Teresa de Lisieux, He Was Obsessed With Saving Souls

The Holy Rosary enables us to walk closer with Jesus

Meditative Lessons on the Glorious Mysteries

    In the fourth and final part of Chapter 12, Behold His Glory! the Blessed Mother conveys to us how we can emulate the Holy Family and walk closer with her Divine Son through the mysteries and prayers of the Holy Rosary. She reminds us to cling to the Gospel which has been distorted and twisted to fit the modern, worldly thinking that has sold out to the devil. These meditative lessons, imparted by Our Lady to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart after Pentecost 1993, are meant to inspire and prompt a greater understanding of the Glorious Mysteries.

I am praying and interceding for you before God that you convert; that your life and behavior always be Christian. Thank you for having responded to my call.
