From 1918 to the very end of his life, Padre Pio bore the stigmata, wounds similar to those inflicted on Christ when he was crucified.

What Three Deaths Have Taught Me JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - January 13, 2016 Earlier this week I found out someone from my past had died at the young age of 31. While I was never romantically involved with him (though I did have a crush on him for a while in my early-mid teens) nor were we ever really friend, I still have great memories of the couple of times I interacted with him. I don't like talking about that part of my life because of all the drama associated with it (read: ex-boyfriend from heck was involved; they knew each ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2016/01/what-three-deaths-have-taught-me.html

St. Elizabeth Seton & The Eucharist DA MIHI ANIMAS - January 4, 2016 ... Elizabeth was always very concerned about the eternal destiny of her many loved ones, and she would try to direct the attention of dying friends to the next life. Fear and concern for her own and her children's eternal destiny, and desire for eternity, were always before her mind; these motives would eventually lead her into the Catholic Church. Due to her husband's illness and having had it recommended that he go to another climate, Elizabeth and William Seton had traveled to Italy to visit ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2016/01/st-elizabeth-seton-eucharist.html

These meetings in the crowded market squares of our town at this time of year are simply chance meetings. We did not know that Mrs O'Bubblegum was going to be out shopping at the same time as us and wanted to share some news with us. It is by chance that we meet these people. Today's Gospel speaks of another meeting between Our Lady and her cousin Elizabeth. This was not a chance ...http://mariesgem.blogspot.com/2015/12/advent-thoughts.html

He said as a boy he wasted a lot of time, but that's hard to believe since he received his Master of Arts degree at the age of nineteen at the University of Cologne.

Count Down to Christmas With Works of Mercy TRAINING HAPPY HEARTS - December 20, 2015 ... quickly this Advent has passed. I feel as though we just celebrated the church's new year and that I am woefully unprepared for Christmas still. Yet, here we are, but a few days away from the commemoration of Christ's coming. Thankfully, Our Lord comes to us regardless of how prepared we feel.

But then there's Doyle the historian/teacher. Woven into his stories one finds history and theology and pathos and love. Here he recounts a ...http://kathyschiffer.com/books-film/the-thorny-grace-of-it-essays-for-imperfect-catholics/

Fulton Sheen's Biblical Account of the Catholic Church As Christ's Mystical Body CALLED TO COMMUNION - December 9, 2015 ...

Father Ignatius liked to wait in the car park after Mass and greet his parishioners as they ...http://timeforreflections.blogspot.com/2015/12/the-graceful-lady.html
