"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

St. Pio

"Keep close to the Catholic Church at all times, for the Church alone can give you true peace, since she alone possesses Jesus, the true Prince of Peace, in the Blessed Sacrament." - St. Pio

I'm praying for all my friends who fell away ... it is easy to do.

Song for this post here.


  1. Wishing you a happy St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina's feast-day today, Terry and to all your readers here. HOPE you were/are blessed by him and the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, Paternal Heart of st. Joseph, too. God bless always!!

  2. I attended Mass this evening and Father Ramon shared a beautiful story with us about St. Padre Pio. Fr. Ramon went to Italy to visit the Church where St. Padre Pio's incorrupt body is entombed. He said he looks as if he's sleeping. He was able to touch the confessional where Padre Pio would listen to confessions too. He told us he was very moved by his visit and asked us all to ask St. Padre Pio for his holy intercession on behalf of the Holy Souls in Purgatory.

    I am going to try and become friends with Padre Pio and ask him to intercede for my many family members, myself included, who struggle, who have addictions, who have left the faith, some whom I love very much, no longer believe in God.

    I know he will help me draw closer to Jesus and to Mary...this is my hope so that I can truly remain hopeful and prayerful for the conversion and salvation of my family and for all whom I encounter. I just want to be a faithful daughter of the Church.
