Marvelous effects

"Every Holy Mass, heard with devotion,
produces in our souls marvelous effects,
abundant spiritual and material graces
which we, ourselves, do not know...
It is easier for the earth to exist without the sun
than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass!"
St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina
Priest, Stigmatist, Mystic
Italy (1887-1968)
Recalling Feast Day - Sept. 23*  
*Since today is SUNDAY, it is the fundamental feast to celebrate.
In the words of a fourth century homily,
the "the Lord's Day" is "the lord of days".
 “When I am close to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament,
I feel as if my heart is bursting out of my chest.” ~ St Padre Pio
St Padre Pio, ora pro nobis!
