Miraculous Image of the Child Jesus

Miraculous image of the Child Jesus —
A monk on the desert is reported to have taken a picture of the Holy Eucharist while exposed. Upon developing the film, this image of the child Jesus appeared. Sometime later, Jesus told this same monk that He would “”I promise to send my blessings and my peace to each home where this image is found.”

Look at that sweet face! 
Jesus I Love You 
place my Trust in YOU!

Padre Pio Saint, Prophet, Stigmatist

"In order to attract us, 
the Lord grants us many graces 
that we believe can easily 
obtain Heaven for us. 
We do not know, however, 
that in order to grow, 
we need hard bread: 
the cross, humiliation, 
trials and denials."
Padre Pio

Padre Pio (Francesco Forgione) at 14
From his earliest years Francesco Forgione was a man of prayer. Considered a quiet boy by the other youngsters he would seldom play with them "because they blaspheme." 

This aversion to sin would cause him to run away to pray in the church of St. Pius V. 

At other times he would sit under a tree on his father's property and "think about God." 

By age five Francesco had already determined to become a Franciscan Capuchin, in part because of the habit and the beard, which he liked greatly, but also moved by the grace of God to seek perfection.

His climb of the ladder of holiness, however, involved more than pious aspirations and flight from the bad example of the world. 

Padre Pio as altar boy 1954
Even very young it encompassed to a remarkable degree the battle against the flesh and against the devil. For example, the child Francis was no stranger to mortification. Although the family had meager rations as it was, Francesco nonetheless occasionally deprived himself of food. And, at age nine his mother discovered him sleeping on the floor with a rock for his pillow, a practice which apparently had been going on for some time. Such austerity would become a hallmark of his entire life.

He also experienced the assaults of the devil, who appeared in horrible forms in his dreams. Later in life these attacks would take a more direct form, even physical assaults.

January 1903 saw Francesco Forgione, age 15, enter religious life or the state of perfection in the Franciscan Order. While religious are not by the fact of their state necessarily perfect, the life of the three evangelical counsels (poverty, chastity and obedience) is ordered to making them so. 

Our Lord, counseling those who wished to be perfect, offered them a means of complete surrender to God, the giving up of the right to marry (Mt 19:12), to own material goods (Mt 19:21a),  and to do what one chooses (Mt 19:21b).

It was at this time, the entrance to the novitiate, that Francesco received the name of Fra. Pio (Brother Pius); Fra. to indicate that he was a religious Fratello (Italian) or Frater (Latin) and Pio to indicate by his change of name that a new life was beginning. Only later, with priestly ordination in 1910, would he assume the name by which he will probably be forever known, Padre Pio.

In 1910, Brother Pio was ordained a priest by Archbishop Paolo Schinosi at the Cathedral of Benevento. Four days later, he offered his first Mass at the parish church of Our Lady of the Angels.

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Eucharist was of upmost importance to a priest.  Father Pio was no in touch with the Sacrifice of Calvary that is celebrated in the Mass, his Masses would many times last over 3 hours.

"To this Holy Sacrifice, offered visibly by way of signs - bread and wine - but presenting the invisible and eternal sacrifice of Christ (Heb. 10:14, Rev. 5:6), Padre Pio dedicated His most intense acts of piety, and obtained from the Father perfect conformity to the crucified Lord.

Padre Pio dedicating long hours in the Confessional
So, close was this conformity that he lived it out even outside of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, through the immolation of the service of the confessional, dedicating long hours to the reconciliation of sinners, through a ministry of intense sufferings offered on behalf of others, through enduring the assaults of the devil that his spiritual children might not, and through the mystical conformity of the stigmata, the wounds of Christ's crucifixion, as the first priest in the history of the Church to do so.

In all these ways Padre Pio
was both priest and Victim
like our  High Priest Jesus Christ."

The Stigmata - Padre Pio

The Stigmata

On the 20th September, 1918, Padre Pio collapsed in the chapel and was found to be bleeding profusely from five deep wounds in his hands, feet and side. When he regained consciousness he begged his fellow monks to keep the event secret, but word soon spread and people flocked to the monastery from all over the country to see the stigmata for themselves, and to confess their sins to this ‘living saint’.

During the next few years Padre Pio was forced to endure a series of medical investigations and attempted cures, none of which changed the character of the wounds. He never talked about himself or complained, but when someone foolishly asked him if his wounds hurt, he replied:

‘Do you think that the Lord gave them
to me for a decoration?’

This phenomenon continued for fifty years, until the end of his life. The blood flowing from the stigmata smelled of perfume or flowers, a phenomenon mentioned in stories of the lives of several saints and often referred to as the odour of sanctity.

Padre Pio's Sufferings 
During Mass
An interview by 

Fr. Tarcisio with 

Padre Pio:

Fr. Tarcisio: At what hour of the day do you suffer most?

Padre Pio: During the offering of the Mass.

Fr. Tarcisio: At what moment of the Divine Sacrifice (of the Mass) do you suffer Most?

Padre Pio: Always and increasingly.

Fr. Tarcisio: During the offering of the Mass, at what moment do you suffer most?

Padre Pio: From the Consecration to Communion.

Fr. Tarcisio: At what part of the Mass are you scourged?

Padre Pio: From the beginning to the end, but more intensely after the Consecrations.

Fr. Tarcisio: During the Mass, are the pricks of thorns from the crown and the scourging real?

Padre Pio: What do you mean? The results are the same.

Fr. Tarcisio: What should we do during Mass?

Padre Pio: Repent and love.

Fr. Tarcisio: How should we hear Mass?

Padre Pio: In the same way that the Most Holy Virgin and the Holy women assisted.  In the same way that St. John assisted at the Eucharistic Sacrifice and the bloody one of the Cross.  We priests are the sacrificers of Jesus, the Lamb of God during the Mass, while all of paradise reverently descends on the altar.

Padre Pio celebrating Mass
Fr. Tarcisio: What benefits do we receive on hearing it?

Padre Pio: It is not possible to number them.  You will see them in Paradise.

So, in the actual life experience of Padre Pio, we see that the Holy Mass is truly the Sacrifice of Jesus on Calvary for the conversion of sinners and salvation of souls.

Padre Pio with child
Padre Pio  and 

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 his solemn duty to uphold the infallible, magisterial teaching of Catholicism against unnatural methods of birth control.

Pope Paul VI
Only two weeks before his own death in September of that year, St. Padre Pio wrote an inspired and moving letter to the Holy Father which was printed in the Vatican’s official newspaper L’Osservatore Romano. 2   It is an epistle of great significance, and will likely be part of the evidence put forth in his favor should St. Pio be declared a Doctor of the Church.  He is effusive in his praise of the Pope’s encyclical, referring to its “lofty teachings,” “eternal truths,” “clear and decisive words,” and its “inspired directives.”
In his letter, St. Pio recognizes that the source of the pope’s greatest suffering is the disobedience of so many within the Church to his magisterial teachings.

"I know that Your heart suffers much these days on account of the happenings in the Church: for peace in the world, for the great needs of its peoples; but above all, for the lack of obedience of some, even Catholics, to the lofty teachings which You, assisted by the Holy Spirit and in the name of God, have given us."4

He understands that the Holy Father is carrying his personal cross in Christ’s footsteps, following the narrow way of the truth.  St. Pio offers his own sufferings and prayers so that the Pope can persevere in his mission. 

"I offer Your Holiness my daily prayers and sufferings, the insignificant but sincere offering of the least of your sons, asking the Lord to comfort you with His grace to continue along the direct yet often burdensome way—in defense of those eternal truths which can never change with the times."

Padre Pio  was canonized by Saint John Paul II on June 16, 2002

Prayers against Evil - Spiritual Warfare

This is War!!
This is a War against Demons!!

I hope that you have noticed what is happening around the world... Satan is working harder now then ever before.. they are making gateways to Baal, having Satanic Black Masses in public, celebrities strutting around on stage glorifying Satan... 

You need to start praying for protection for yourself and your family... your country, and the world!!  

Always remember to pray 
to your Guardian Angel 
and to St. Michael -- 
after all he kicked Satan  
out of heaven at the beginning 
and is fighting him again and 
now at the end, 
he will send him down to hell forever!!!

Here are some protection prayers that I have found, protect yourself it is going to get bad before Christ comes...

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel

No one Messes with St. Michael!!

Holy Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. 
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; 
and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, 
by the power of God cast into hell Satan 
and all the evil spirits who wander through the world 
seeking the ruin of souls.

"I will put enmities between thee and the woman, 
and thy seed and her seed: 
she shall crush thy head, 
and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel."
Genesis 3:15 [Douay Rheims] 

Mary, the Woman from Genesis crushing the head of Satan

The Woman who will crush the head of Satan

O Glorious Queen of Heaven and Earth, Virgin Most Powerful, thou who hast the power to crush the head of the ancient serpent with thy heel, come and exercise this power flowing from the grace of thine Immaculate Conception. 

Shield us under the mantle of thy purity and love, draw us into the sweet abode of thy heart and annihilate and render impotent the forces bent on destroying us.

Come Most Sovereign Mistress of the Holy Angels and Mistress of the Most Holy Rosary, thou who from the very beginning hast received from God the power and the mission to crush the head of Satan. 

Send forth thy holy legions, we humbly beseech thee, that under thy command and by thy power they may pursue the evil spirits, counter them on every side, resist their bold attacks and drive them far from us, harming no one on the way, binding them to the foot of the Cross to be judged and sentenced by Jesus Christ Thy Son and to be disposed of by Him as He wills.

St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, come to our aid in this grave

battle against the forces of darkness, repel the attacks of the devil.

Casting Down Satan & all Evil Spirits to Hell

Prayer against Evil

Spirit of our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Most Holy Trinity, descend upon me. Please purify me, mold me, fill me with yourself, and use me. Banish all the forces of evil from me; destroy them, vanquish them so that I can be healthy and do good deeds.

Banish from me all spells, witchcraft, black magic, demonic assignments, malefice, maledictions and the evil eye; diabolic infestations, oppressions, possessions; all that is evil and sinful; jealousy, treachery, envy; all physical, psychological, moral, spiritual and diabolical ailments; as well as all enticing spirits, deaf, dumb, blind, mute and sleeping spirits, new-age spirits, occult spirits, religious spirits, antichrist spirits, and any other spirits of death and darkness.

I command and bid all the powers who molest me—by the power of God Almighty, in the name of Jesus Christ our Savior—to leave me forever, and to be consigned into the everlasting lake of fire, that they may never again touch me or any other creature in the entire world. 

Be Gone Satan!!
Standard Deliverance

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, by the power of his cross, his blood and his resurrection, I bind you Satan, the spirits, powers and forces of darkness, the nether world, and the evil forces of nature.

I take authority over all curses, hexes, demonic activity and spells directed against me, my relationships, ministry endeavors, finances, and the work of my hands; and I break them by the power and authority of the risen Lord Jesus Christ. I stand with the power of the Lord God Almighty to bind all demonic interaction, interplay and communications between spirits sent against me, and send them directly to Jesus Christ for him to deal with as he wills.

I ask forgiveness for and renounce all negative inner vows that I have made with the enemy, and ask that Jesus Christ release me from these vows and from any bondage they may have held in me. I claim the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, over every aspect of my life for my protection. 

Spiritual Battle -- This is War

Binding Evil Spirits

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I stand with the power of the Lord God Almighty to bind Satan and all his evil spirits, demonic forces, satanic powers, principalities, along with all kings and princes of terrors, from the air, water, fire, ground, netherworld, and the evil forces of nature.

I take authority over all demonic assignments and functions of destruction sent against me, and I expose all demonic forces as weakened, defeated enemies of Jesus Christ. I stand with the power of the Lord God Almighty to bind all enemies of Christ present together, all demonic entities under their one and highest authority, and I command these spirits into the abyss to never again return.

I arise today with the power of the Lord God Almighty to call forth the heavenly host, the holy angels of God, to surround and protect, and cleanse with God’s holy light all areas vacated by the forces of evil. I ask the Holy Spirit to permeate my mind, heart, body, soul and spirit, creating a hunger and thirst for God’s holy Word, and to fill me with the life and love of my Lord, Jesus Christ.


From Unseen Warfare: 
You must never be afraid . . . 
that the enemy is too strong against you, 
that his attacks are never ending . . .

You must never be afraid, 
if you are troubled by a flood of thoughts, 

that the enemy is too strong against you, 
that his attacks are never ending, 

that the war will last for your lifetime, 
and that you cannot avoid incessant 
downfalls of all kinds. 

Know that our enemies, 
with all their wiles, 

are in the hands of our divine Commander,
our Lord Jesus Christ, 
or Whose honour and glory 
you are waging war. 

Since He himself leads you into battle, 
He will certainly not suffer your enemies 
to use violence against you and overcome you, 

if you do not yourself cross over 
to their side with your will. 

He will Himself fight for you and 
will deliver your enemies into your hands, 
when He wills and as He wills, 

as it is written: 
‘The Lord thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, 
to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee’ 
(Deut. xxii, 14).

Prayers for Our Priests... 
Without them there is NO Holy Eucharist!!

In my parish there are those who take every opportunity to criticize and fight against our parish priest and have been doing this over many years... we have lost 3 highly devout and holy priests, true to the Teachings of the Magisterium.  

Laity has decided THEY are in charge and KNOW WHAT’S BEST, even sinking down to threatening that their contributions will stop! 

We need to SUPPORT our priests, they have a hard job!! 

 We need to bring back the 
RESPECT AND LOVE for our priests. 

Please join me in praying for them every day and BE SUPPORTIVE OF YOUR PRIEST… 


By John Cardinal O'Connor

Lord Jesus, we your people pray to You for our priests. You have given them to us for OUR needs. We pray for them in THEIR needs.

We know that You have made them priests in the likeness of your own priesthood. You have consecrated them, set them aside, anointed them, filled them with the Holy Spirit, appointed them to teach, to preach, to minister, to console, to forgive, and to feed us with Your Body and Blood.

Yet we know, too, that they are one with us and share our human weaknesses. We know too that they are tempted to sin and discouragement as are we, needing to be ministered to, as do we, to be consoled and forgiven, as do we. Indeed, we thank You for choosing them from among us, so that they understand us as we understand them, suffer with us and rejoice with us, worry with us and trust with us, share our beings, our lives, our faith.

We ask that You give them this day the gift You gave Your chosen ones on the way to Emmaus: Your presence in their hearts, Your holiness in their souls, Your joy in their spirits. And let them see You face to face in the breaking of the Eucharistic bread.

We pray to You, O Lord, through Mary the mother of all priests, for Your priests and for ours. Amen.

March, 1995


Jesus, Good Shepherd,

You sent us the Holy Spirit to guide Your Church

and lead her faithful to You through the ministry of Your priests.

Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, grant to Your priests

wisdom in leading,

faithfulness in teaching,

and holiness in guarding Your sacred Mysteries.

As they cry out with all the faithful, "Abba, Father!"

may Your priests be ever more closely identified 

with You in Your divine Son-ship

and offer their own lives with You, the one saving Victim.

Make them helpful brothers of one another,

and understanding fathers of all Your people.

On this Pentecost Sunday, renew in Your priests 

deeper faith,

greater trust in You,

childlike reliance on our Mother Mary,

and unwavering fidelity to the Holy Father and his bishops.

Holy Mary, intercede for your priests.
St. Joseph, protect them.
St. Michael, defend them.
St. John Vianney, pray for them.


Jesus, meek and humble of heart,
give all priests Thy spirit of humility;

Jesus, poor and worn out for souls,
give all priests Thy spirit of zeal;

Jesus, full of patience and mercy for sinners,
give all priests Thy spirit of compassion;

Jesus, victim for the sins of the world,
give all priests Thy spirit of sacrifice;

Jesus, lover of the little and the poor,
give all priests Thy spirit of charity.

Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us;

and obtain for us numerous and holy
priests and religious.



O Jesus, Eternal Priest

Keep Thy Priests within the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart where none may touch them.

Keep unstained their hands, which daily touch Thy Sacred Body;

Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with Thy Precious Blood,

Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of Thy Priesthood.

Let Thy Holy Love surround them from the world’s contagion.  Bless their labors with abundant fruit.

May the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here, and their everlasting crown in heaven.
