Aleteia, Judy Landrieu Klein: St. Pius of Pietrelcina is still fondly known as “Padre Pio” and I gratefully remember the day I was “introduced” to him in the mid-1990s. It happened when my dry cleaner, Curt, dropped off a relic of the deceased Capuchin friar along with our newly cleaned clothes. “He’s a very powerful intercessor,” Curt said as he handed me a brochure with information about the legendary mystic, which also contained prayers for his miraculous intercession.: The story is here.
Brother André Marie, M.I.C.M.“She was the mother of Saint Praxedes, Saint Pudentiana, Saint Novatus and Saint Timothy, and the wife of Saint Pudens. It was the mother of Saint Pudens, Saint Priscilla, who was the hostess of Saint Peter when he went to Rome in the year 42.” https://t.co/GKkvNQBErn11 hours ago
