SaintCast Episode #8, St. Catherine of Siena, More from Relicman, broken fingers, preview SF soundseeing tour, Spheksophobia?

Greetings from the City by the Bay, under the patronage of Saint Francis of Assisi. The SaintCast travels to San Francisco after the SaintCaster breaks a finger! Hear about St. Catherine of Siena, the Dominican stigmatic who helped bring the papacy back to Rome, the last holy men and women raised to the title Blessed last fall, and the next to be so honored in May. Why are relics often embedded in stones in the altars of the faithful? Tom Serafin from the Apostolate for Holy Relics answers this question and more. Plus our new St. Jeopardy quiz, and the answer to last weekâs phobia query. All this and the calendar of saints. . . Stay tuned for our first sound-seeing tours beginning next week. . .

SaintCast Episode #7, St. Bernadette Soubirous, visions of the Blessed Virgin, La Salette, Brother Paschal of Kolbe Shrine

Happy Easter to all! Yesterday was Easter, but 127 years ago on April 16th, a saint was welcomed into heaven, Bernadette Soubirous. Tune in to this week's SaintCast to hear how about a young, poor, sickly 14 year old girl from Lourdes, France, and her visions of a beautiful lady. Brother Paschal Kolodziej of Marytown in Libertyville, Illinois, will give us insight into the holiness of Maximilian Kolbe, and give us some personal anecdotes from eyewitnesses to his martyrdom. We'll talk about the St. Jeopardy answer from 2 weeks ago, and introduce a new quiz. What is Spheksophobia? Tell us about your favorite saint movie. . .
